Dominic West arrived on the set of John Carter ready to have some fun playing the foil to the title character’s hero (Taylor Kitsch). The film also allowed him to work with his dear friend, Mark Strong (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy). Movie Fanatic is in Arizona, and walking onto the interview set for our exclusive video with West, and it’s easy to see how this landscape could feel a bit like Mars. Fitting, since the film’s most dramatic scenes occur on the Red Planet where West’s character Sab Than is waging an all-out takeover of the world.
We’re huge fans of West from his work on The Wire, but also the stellar theatrical and film resume he’s built. He’s currently seen on the BBC’s The Hour and he said fans most recognize him for his work on 300 and Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace.
