Alexander Siddig on Miral, Julian Schnabel & His Garden

In a new interview with the Huffington Post, Sid talks about working with Julian Schnabel on Miral, the variety of roles he’s played in the last year, and so much more. It’s another terrific interview.

Alexander has plants that have to get in the ground before he departs for Ireland for several weeks to shoot a recurring role on an Irish television show: “It’s called a ‘family show,’ which I think is a euphemism for ‘kids,’ but your parents will sit with you and read a paper,” he chortles.

“I’m jealous of your green thumb! I kill every green thing I come into contact with,” I confess, thinking of my brown-tinged bamboo plant and non-descript intermittently flowering pink…thing on my windowsill.

“The city isn’t fair,” he protests soothingly. “You can’t hope to grow stuff. You can only really grow a nice box of herbs, and if you haven’t got the sun, if you’re facing west or north, you’re screwed, and that’s nearly half the city, so I wouldn’t say it’s easy. It’s much easier here. You just stick it in the ground and walk away.”
