Recently I had the opportunity to talk to Martin Kemp about his latest project Age of Kill.
In theatres from Friday, the action-packed film sees Martin Kemp play disgraced special ops sniper Sam Blake who is plunged into a world of darkness when his daughter (Dani Dyer) is taken hostage by a mysterious terrorist. Out of options and with no one to turn to, Blake is forced to carry out their evil bidding and must assassinate six seemingly random targets within six hours on the streets of London.
Speaking to Martin, it was clear that he’s passionate about the role, and we also had the chance to touch on his musical career and what it’s like being back on stage with Spandau Ballet. Here are some snippets I enjoyed.
On playing a leading role in a action film
“I was surprised as it’s an action film how much emotion you can take into that”
On handling guns on set
“It’s an interesting thing when the guns come out on a film set, and all the men kinda bristle with testosterone saying I’ll have the Berretta! It’s a funny thing watching that happen”
On being back on stage again with Spandau Ballet
“In the 80s when we played the shows it was a celebration of rock n roll, we would drink till we dropped. Now we go on stage the night is about the show much more and doing your job”
And finally here’s the video of my interview. Thanks to Martin Kemp for taking the time to speak to us and I hope you all enjoy the interview
AGE OF KILL will be released in cinemas and Digital/VOD on 12th June 2015
and on DVD/Blu-ray on 15th June 2015.
