Dominic West: “US directors like cheap British actors”

Dominic West (40), famous for playing Jimmy McNulty in The Wire, has revealed that he thinks British actors get cast in the United States because they are cheaper than their American counterparts.

West claimed that casting directors prefer Brits because they do not charge as much money and they are less demanding.

“Why are British stars doing so well? I suppose my flippant answer is that we’re cheaper and we don’t complain as much, but I don’t know why, really. One reason might be that American actors may not be so good in an ensemble. They’d be more interested in being a star, whereas The Wire was very much an ensemble piece,” Dominic told FHM.

West also stated that his starring role in the renowned TV crime drama, which ran for five seasons until 2008 , is the main focus of people’s interest in him.

He said: “It is the only reason most people want to talk to me. It has certainly changed my career, it is brought me a bit of recognition. It is great that a lot of people of all ages & backgrounds are digging it.”
