Always love seeing interviews with actors out of character like this, and seeing how so completely different they are from the person they portray on screen.

Not even slightly. I suppose he's good at getting into character but that character is pretty annoying.

He makes his character of Sam dingle seem even more slow-witted seeing him there in real life. But I agree he is one of the better actors on Emmerdale though dosen't get enough stories.

Agreed, he is criminally underused.

What a strange post, you are contridicting yourself massively here. By deffinition a brilliant actor is someone who can get into character well. That's what acting is!!!!

What you are actually saying is that you don't like the character he plays, which again is supporting how good an actor he is as he is having you believe the character he plays enough for you have strong feelings against him! Especially when as evidenced by the vid I have posted the actor is so far removed from the part he plays.

So just because he's different to the character he plays, he's an amazing actor?

He's nothing special at all.

James Hooton is a talented man. If I had not been told who he was before I watched I don't think I would have recognised 'Sam Dingle' in that clip.

I feel that to be able to portray someone like the character of Sam Dingle in such a believable manner when you as a person are so far away from being like that yourself makes you a bloody good actor, yes.
