Paddy Considine

paddy-considineThis drawing of Paddy is based on his appearance in the film Dead Man’s Shoes, which for me is less of a fictional drama than a documentary of my teenage years. After the success of his directorial debut Tyrannosaur (which he also wrote) it looked like he was going to move away from acting, but that’s not happened. This week I saw him in the very impressive The Girl With All The Gifts, a refreshing advancement of the tired and worn-out post-apocalyptic zombie horror sub-genre. Cast as a gruff and stoic squaddie, he underplays the role and is all the more effective for it.
