Gareth David Lloyd has recently starred in the BBC 3 smash hit Torchwood, playing Ianto Jones. As he gears up towards filming the second series, Gareth talks to us about the pressures of filming Doctor Who's first successful spin-off. Gareth trained at the National Youth Theatre, and his credits include the role of Sebastian in Twelfth Night on stage, as well as appearances in television programmes such as Mine All Mine, Absolute Power, Casualty, Rosemary & Thyme, and The Bill. He has also recently voiced a collection of stories by M R James for Fantom Films.More

Interesting but not necessary
This interview takes place between Seasons / Series 1 and 2 of "Torchwood" and is part of O'Neill's Cult Conversations collection. I am a big fan of both Torchwood and Gareth David-Lloyd, so when I saw this interview I jumped on it.
David-Lloyd shares a bit of his work and experiences before his iconic role of Ianto Jones in Torchwood, as well as his hopes for future Torchwood episodes and projects he'd like to do beyond the Doctor Who universe. The problem I had in listening to the interview was with David-Lloyd's nervousness. He seems rather uncertain of himself and stammers over so many of his words that it's often hard to follow what he's saying. Even his attempts to joke about life on the set or explain his love of the franchise are hindered, if not garbled, by his nervousness. And as the interview goes on, David-Lloyd seems to stumble more and more. Die hard fans may want to give this a listen, but for me, it wasn't worth what very little insight you get into the actor and the franchise for having to pick and dig through David-Lloyd's answers to get them.
Sorry, Gareth. Still love ya, mate.
