He has to be recognised for what he is. I think it’s terrible if he’s recognised for what I am. That’s not fair on him and he will be unhappy if he starts depending on that. I want him to be himself and be recognised for what he does. It’s tricky like this Bangkok thing where I attacked this lady, I completely lost my temper. I’m not proud of it, I’ll be ashamed of it for the rest of my life, but I was protecting him from my demons, from the silly things that have to do with my job.
