James Purefoy is one of Britain's most prolific actors, appearing in everything from the Royal Shakespeare Company to Netflix's Sex Education. But his latest film, Fisherman’s Friends: One and For All, while ostensibly about a bunch of Cornish blokes who sing sea shanties, is really about the fragile issue that is male mental health. James joins Bryony to talk about dealing with the grief of his father, while playing a character grieving their father, boarding schools as a place to 'cauterise people’s emotions' and the power of articulating your pain. Fisherman’s Friends: One and For All is in cinemas across the UK and Irelands from Friday 19th August | Read more from Bryony: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/authors/bryony-gordon/ | For 30 days' free access to The Telegraph: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/madworld | Follow Bryony on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/bryonygordon/ | See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
