Noel Clarke: ‘I have my sensitive side!’

GENTLE SIDE: Noel Clarke

FILMMAKER Noel Clarke insists there is another side to his often nonchalant persona.

The popular director and actor, known for playing bad-boy Sam in his hit 2006 film Kidulthood, is also known off-screen for being laid-back and not easily excitable.

But in his latest sci-fi adventure Storage 24, which he directed, Clarke plays sensitive guy Charlie, who is left heartbroken and devastated, following a recent break-up with his girlfriend.

Asked if his real-life wife would consider him sensitive, the father-of-two told The Voice: “Yeah, she would say so. She’s got two children, so she’s knows about my sensitivity [laughs].”

The 36-year-old says that he brings various sides of his personality to the roles he plays.

“I guess there’s a part of every character I play in me. So if people cross me, there’s definitely some Sam in me. But also, I grew up with my mum and I’ve got a wife now, so I’ve also got that gentle side.

Of his latest film role, Clarke adds: “Charlie’s quite self-centred and I’m not like that. But I’ve got my sensitive side.”
