For today’s In Profile, we shoot the dashing Jonathan Bailey — the face behind Campus and ITV’s new crime drama Broadchurch.
When we sat down with Jonathan Bailey, we weren’t sure what, or who, to expect — the goofball anti-academic in the short-lived (and well loved) Campus, the pensive and radical thinker Leonardo Da Vinci (yep, he’s another one) in BBC’s Leonardo, or the hardline budding journo in ITV’s hit Broadchurch. Turns out, he’s just a really cool, talented dude — it’s not called acting for nothing.
What’s the one item of clothing you’d never wear?
A catsuit. Or clogs.
Leonardo da Vinci or Leonardo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?
Da Vinci. The original super hero.
When are you happiest?
When listening to music on the move.
What’s your earliest memory?
Throwing a cup of ribena on my sister.
Comedy or drama?
Comedy – nice and easy to dip into.
What instrument would you play in a band?
I’d play my recently purchased cello… badly.
