Dominic Cooper's 10 commandments of Hollywood

“The first time I saw it I was completely mesmerised by the pristine green lawns, blue skies and vastness on a scale I’d never seen.”

Dominic Cooper isn’t talking about a film set - he’s talking about the place that makes film sets: Hollywood, Los Angeles, birthplace of the blockbuster and occasional crusher of dreams.

Not his though. Ten years on since Cooper’s first visit to promote The History Boys, the Londoner’s career has grown exponentially, and with it so have his air miles, as he's returned again and again to this world, appearing in everything from Marvel films to Mamma Mia.

Now comes his biggest role to date, playing the titular anti-hero in Amazon Prime series Preacher. Adapted by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg from a comic book series once deemed unfilmable, Cooper, you’ll be glad to know, makes the role of the demon-slaying drunk his own.

We sat down with the star to ask what lessons he’s learnt in Hollywood so far. Earnest, eloquent and highly entertaining, it’s one hell of an insight.

Preacher is available on Amazon Prime now
