Noel Clarke gets ''bugged'' when people suggest he shouldn't act and direct and should stick to one thing at a time.
Noel Clarke gets frustrated when people say he shouldn't act and direct.
The British star - who works behind and in front of the lens on new film '18.104.22.168' - confesses Americans understand his desire to direct and act more than Brits.
He said: "In America, the more things people can do, the happier they are. You can do everything there. Over here they're like, 'What? Let me sit down and have a sip of whisky. You write, you act and you - direct?' I can't understand that. You have to apologise for doing more than one thing. That bugs me. A lot."
The 34-year-old leading man also admits '22.214.171.124' was hard to work on because it was "unique".
He told Britain's Independent newspaper: "It's hard to do it justice 'coz it's quite a unique film. It's a new genre. I wrote it because I was always wanting to do something different like Quentin Tarentino, I love those types of film. The idea of doing something different scared me."
'126.96.36.199' - which stars Emma Robert, Tamsin Egerton and Ophelia Lovibond - is in UK cinemas now.
