Gentleman’s Journal Meets…

Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Actor and designer

Henry Lloyd-Hughes is an actor, designer and thoroughly nice chap. He’s also the first guest on Gentleman’s Journal Meets…, our new podcast series where we celebrate the most fascinating people we’ve met at Gentleman’s Journal towers this month.

We recorded this episode in late February, and Henry was in the middle of filming The Irregulars, a new Netflix series in which he stars as none other than Sherlock Holmes. But you’ll probably know him as the psychopathic tech founder Aaron Peel in Killing Eve, or as Alfred Lyttleton in The English Game — or even as the ruffian Mark Donovan in The Inbetweeners.

It’s a fascinating conversation, not least because Henry is so candid and honest about the gory details of the acting game. In it, we talk about NE Blake, the style brand that was inspired by Henry’s great-grandfather; how he was largely cut from the Harry Potter series; why acting is just like cricket; and how his first ever role ended in him vomiting all over a caravan. Enjoy.

This episode has been recorded at Mark's Club, read by Joseph Bullmore and produced by Martin Lumsden.
