Sean Rigby Actor Question And Answer
Damiana: Endeavour boasts an impressive roster of characters. And while I love each and every individual, but I’m most attracted to Jim Strange and pathologist Max de Bryn. Maybe this is because they’re both intriguing characters that frequently appear in Colin Dexter’s books as well as the first Morse television show. It’s a subtle and subtle performance because this was your first job in TV after you graduated from LAMDA (The London Academy for Music and Dramatic Arts). Tell us what you did to land the role?
Sean: I graduated from LAMDA on July 12, 2012, and, like most students from the drama school, was in search of an employment opportunity when I graduated. My friend wrote me an email stating that he was auditioning to play a role in Endeavour. He wasn’t sure if he was suitable for the part. However, he thought I could be. I contacted my agent and demanded that they give me an audition. However, they were unsure if my age was appropriate for the role. It was a good thing that they decided to go with the flow and offered me an interview in the presence of Susie Parris, the Casting Director.
DAMIAN Do you remember what section from the script that you had been handed to audition on?
SEAN If I recall right, that was the chapter of Girl in which Morse finds Morse is a member of the Golf Cheese and Chess Society.
DAMIAN: I’m sure you conducted a lot of research before being selected for the role of Strange, but you’d never had the chance to see Inspector Morse before the audition. I’m interested to know your initial thoughts about the character after the script Russell Lewis script?
SEAN: There’s a straightforward, no manner in the manner Strange Strange communicates. It’s probably the thing that initially struck me.
DAMIAN I think it was certainly thrilling to go Through Colin Dexter’s Inspector Morse novels, find different clues, and write notes on those characters and the connections. Which were your most exciting parts that made up the whole puzzle?
SEAN: It’s a highly complicated thing to measure. The dynamics of relationships among Morse, as well as Strange within Endeavour as well as Inspector Morse, are at once quite different, yet quite alike. The most fascinating aspect of reading the novels was gaining a deeper understanding of these characters’ worlds. I had to quickly digest an entire body of work that Morse readers all over the world took years to appreciate and, as much as I wanted to know the details that would guide my writing, I would like to read the books in a thoughtful and uplifting manner, not just to cram like I was studying to take an examination.
DAMIAN: There are fascinating insights into the family life of Strange within As Good as Gold (lovely moments where he is celebrating his birthday by drinking one or two glasses of Macallan as he continues to infuriate Morse with his nostalgic thoughts about his children). Did you have a chance to read the shorter stories?
SEAN: I have to admit my short tales remain not opened on my table at night. However, I’ll be making an attempt to read them shortly. In keeping with my previous response, I’m not sure about binge-reading Colin Dexter’s work. It’s worth pacing and appreciating the way Strange could approach the Macallan!
DAMIAN: Here’s the critical point: just like Morse and Russ, each of Russ and I own documents from Moriarty’s Police Law (1965, Eighteenth Edition) which was mandatory to be read by any police officer passing their Sergeant’s examination. Do you have any copies?
SEAN: I’ll have to be honest and admit that I am not. Strange wouldn’t be impressed!
DAMIAN: We can’t talk about Strange without mentioning the legendary and much-missed James Grout, who played the role from 1987 until 2000. Strange’s Christian name was not mentioned in any of Dexter’s books or the show’s original version; therefore, it was a beautiful tribute to the character that it was finally given the name Jim to honor his memory. In what way does James Grout’s portrayal of the surface affect your own interpretation?
Susan: James Grout was an outstanding actor. It’s that simple. Strange gave Strange his authority in a way that was laced with an underlying kindness. I’d like to believe this Strange during the ’60s was looking for his way to become. He’s sure of where he’d like to go but isn’t sure of his place in the world.
Daman: Strange is a Southerner, and you’re a Northern lad. Is it challenging to integrate James Grout’s voice and the accent in your own voice?
SEAN The truth is that James Grout was from London, and you could definitely detect that in his voice. However, he was an actor trained in classical theatre, and his accent gradually softened. I concluded that Strange could have more of a London accent initially, as it would eventually be softened through his years with the Oxford police forces.
Accents can prove challenging at times. A few times, I am very tongue-tied due to some vowels, only to fall back into my hometown of Lancashire.
David: James Grout gave a superbly judged performance which managed to incorporate a large amount of humor, but it did not diminish his presence and power. It was a stroke of artistic genius. Russ decided to change this by making Morse begin with Strange as the unique character in the initial film in series one (Girl) but by the close (Home), Strange, unlike Morse, took the Sergeant’s exam. Will subsequent series witness the first signs of the inevitable growth of their change in power?
SEAN perhaps a more significant change in their currently divergent priorities.
DAMIAN: Of course, it’s pretty ironic that Morse may be the primary reason for the promotion since Morse was the one who suggested Strange to be the acting Detective Constable in his absence. When he visits his dying father (Home), Perhaps Morse regrets having planted those “little Acorns”?
SEAN: He might regret his decision at times indeed!
DAMIAN: Surprisingly, this isn’t Robbie Lewis with the honor of being Morse’s friend for the longest time, but it’s actually Strange and a thirty-five-year sentence! Morse, along with Max, is first introduced in First Bus towards Woodstock before the character you play is introduced. However, Max is suffering a stroke in the first chapter of Inspector Morse and is replaced by Dr. Grayling Russell, who appears in Ghost in the Machine (Max dies in the novel by Dexter, The Way Through the Woods). On both the screen and in print, Strange is with Morse all the way to the tragic conclusion in The Remorseful Day. Do you have a personal perception of the frequently conflicting relationship of Morse as well as Strange?
SEAN: I’m convinced that there’s a shared admiration between them. Strange is equally enthralled and dismayed by the wit of Morse. Equally, Morse perhaps finds Strange’s reliability charming, despite being annoyed by his unwillingness to change the rules. I’m sure they have a smug tolerance for one another’s shortcomings.
DAMIAN I found some beautiful moments in Rocket that I found very revealing regarding Strange: Morse mentions that there’s a brand new Bergman film playing in the Roxy cinema, and Strange instantly assumes it’s an original Ingrid rather than an Ingmar Bergman film. There’s also the moment of pride when he is featured (looking like a reliable character!) as a character in Pathe film of the newsreel of Princess Margaret’s visit to the Roxy. Strange is not very well-educated. However, he can be extravagant, isn’t he?
SEAN: There’s a touch of an Auguste clown around Strange sometimes. Strange has confidence in his own capabilities and empathetic nature that could result in some funny mistakes.
