21 things you (probably) didn’t know about This Is England | WOW
Cleared Off Dating and Gay Rumors in Interview. Updated on: Joe with his Ex- Girlfriend Vicky McClure (Photo: misjon.info). Joe with. This could be the last time. Joe Gilgun, Vicky McClure, Thomas Turgoose and the rest of the actors at the heart of the original This Is England. I meet Joseph Gilgun giddy and relieved, following an audition for a part he's clearly . But that was my Vicky [McClure, his girlfriend Lol in the show] that. Gilgun is almost angry with himself for the ways in which Woody has.
On first impressions he is boundlessly confident but also a sensitive soul, in need of approval.
I'll have a good worry about this [the interview] later on. He says that he's a loner, but constantly tells affectionate anecdotes about his mates. He claims that he doesn't mind being typecast, but would love the chance to showcase his accent skills. He calls himself "stupid" yet seems anything but. I looked out of place. I looked like a car thief on a fashion course. Tristan Hopkins Gilgun's career trajectory has been far from standard and there's a general feeling from being in his company that he cannot quite believe his luck.
He calls himself a "lucky bastard" at regular intervals, seemingly unaware that any success he's experienced must have had something to do with his own talent. It also seems likely that there's a little bit of Gilgun in every character he plays.

While at Oldham Theatre Workshop he found out he had a talent for making people laugh. The interim was clearly difficult. Gilgun speaks openly and with poignant humour about the tough teen years when his parents divorced, his father got ill, and he "went off the fucking rails".
He was so confused about what direction to take that he even had a bash at fashion design. Which is what I was.
I would sex it up. I would put my penis in its burning exhaust' Gilgun as Eli Dingle in Emmerdale. Rex When he got the part in This Is England he was working as a plasterer and turned up to auditions in his workwear, most likely just as Meadows would have wanted it. The midlander's unique directorial style is well documented and Gilgun clearly feels that this is where he truly learnt his craft; he relishes the opportunity to improvise.
All manner of questions lead us back to on-set stories and outpourings of love about his times with the This Is England crew. I quickly come to realise that Gilgun's constant references to the "gang" are about the team that he's now worked with on a film and two television series. This week sees the next instalment, This Is England '88a three-part TV series screened on consecutive nights.

Billed by Meadows as a "sort of broken nativity play", we will catch up with Woody, Milky and the gang two years on from the devastation caused by Lol's stepfather in the previous series. When Gilgun talks about This Is England '86 he's visibly affected by the storyline. But that was my Vicky [McClure, his girlfriend Lol in the show] that.
