Tim Roth is one of Britain’s most diverse character actors, so much so that some of his best-known work is in iconic American movies that sit alongside homegrown projects on his CV.
He returns to UK soil for Broken , an urban drama that opens in the UK on 8 March 2013. He plays Archie, the lawyer father of the film’s central player Skunk (feisty newcomer Eloise Laurence), and together they live in a confined cul-de-sac that serves as something of a social petri dish.
Roth made his acting debut as a violent skinhead in Alan Clarke’s Made In Britain , and went on to become one of Quentin Tarantino’s key fixtures. Refreshingly, Roth’s as open when talking about his big studio pictures (like The Incredible Hulk ) as he is with the more low-key work.
