Martin Kemp talks to us about Age of Kill

Posted on 08 June 2015 by Chris Ford

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.

British Gymnastics has announced the launch of the new exciting freestyle gymnastics activity, FreeG.

The indoor activity combines traditional gymnastics and acrobatic tricks, with kicks and leaps inspired by martial arts and stunts.

British Gymnastics has developed the new club-based activity in-light of the increased popularity of adrenaline fueled freestyle sports, providing participants with the opportunity to express themselves through an incredible range of tricks and movements in a safe environment.

The governing body has also partnered with Continental Sport to design a range of bespoke freestyle-specific equipment which can be used during sessions by qualified FreeG coaches across the country.

David MarshallHead of Development at British Gymnastics, said: “With the increasing appeal of freestyle sports in the UK we see FreeG as an opportunity for budding freestylers to learn a range of dynamic and exciting tricks in a safe environment.

Included as part of a wider range of participation opportunities offered by BG affiliated clubs, FreeG is set to get participants moving in ways they never thought possible, getting their hearts racing and developing a heightened sense of spatial awareness that can be put to good use in a variety of other sports.
