Jack O’Connell Mr Porter Photo Shoot for The Journal
When Mr Porter meets up with O’Connell, the actor is noticeably rubbing his head frequently. He offers “Sorry. I’ve just had me hair cut. It’s a bit addictive.” O’Connell continues, “It’s just more practical, innit? You don’t have to worry about it. With so many cameras around, you can’t help but become a little self-conscious.”
Revisiting his upbringing, O’Connell talks about growing up in a working middle class family in the East Midlands, sharing, “I cling onto it. It’s where I learned a lot of my early lessons. Someone told me that if you’re 22 before you move away, you keep your accent for ever. I hope that’s indicative of the mindset, too.” Read more on MrPorter.com.
