Latitude review: Paddy Considine
- Credit: PA
One of the most talented actors of his generation and now an award-winning director, Paddy Considine spent an hour in the Film and Music tent at Latitude on Saturday.
The star of Dead Man's Shoes offered fans an insight into his career both in front of and behind the camera and spent a chunk of the session, part of the Total Film activities at this year's festival, taking questions from the audience.
Considine opened up about his unique relationship with director Shane Meadows and said he could not foresee a time when they would not be working together again - even if it takes another 10 years.
Asked about his childhood - which saw his father spend time in prison - he spoke openly about how his formative years had influenced his performances and his writing, particularly with Dead Man's Shoes and his BAFTA-winning directorial debut Tyrannosaur.
Quizzed for his words of advice to budding young actors with a similar background, he simply said 'just get on with it'.

With new film The World's End now in cinemas, it was a perfect opportunity to quiz Considine about working with director Edgar Wright, who he has previously collaborated with on Hot Fuzz.
Considine described him as a 'visionary' and praised the way he works with his with actors. The session was another example of just what makes Latitude unique.
