I`m determined not to lose my name. It`s who I am. It has neither aided my progress nor hampered it. It`s just who I am. My character. My make-up. My culture and heritage is a very rich one. So what if it`s difficult for people to pronounce? We all learned how to say Schwarzenegger.

I`ve been so lucky and things are going so well, ... Fantastic Four is a really wonderful opportunity for me. Especially because I`m playing such an iconic American character.

In the past, I have felt slightly pigeon-holed with the success of roles like Hornblower, all ruffled shirts and wonderful costumes. I think Launcelot was the turning point because he`s more masculine, more dangerous, which goes hand in hand with me growing older. I want longevity, so I`m always trying to escape the way I`m perceived - you know, Ioan the soft-spoken Welshman.

Yeah, I was lucky because I didn`t have to spend hours in freezing water. There weren`t many people my age on set, so Kate (Kate Winslet), Leo (Leonardo DiCaprio) and I hung out together. We would pile into Leo`s dressing room, which was full of PlayStations, mini basketball hoops and the like.

I admitted a long time ago that I wanted to go to Hollywood because there are more opportunities there, and I wanted to work in movies - movies are my first love. And that`s why I went. I don`t feel any added pressure, because I`ve already admitted it in the first place. It`s a nice feeling having people support you because you are a British actor trying to become an international star.

I would love to play this character through every stage of his life. I think it would be unique to have an actor playing him from the very early days as a midshipman; through till he`s an Admiral. So, I would love to play this character till he perishes.

As an actor, you have to admit you are a show-off. But with so many magazines like Heat, it`s diminishing the mystery of going to see somebody on the big screen. The less you know about somebody the better.

I think people are attracted to the character because he`s not a hero in the traditional sense. He`s not a natural leader, he`s just a young man with a very bright mind. He`s compassionate, he hates injustice and he will stand up and fight when he`s pushed to the limit.

As a teacher`s child, I found that automatic respect for authority wasn`t necessarily a good thing. My philosophy was all about pleasing everyone and getting it right, rather than challenging and asking questions. It`s only now I`m getting the confidence to do that because, in America, they`re not scared as a nation to ask questions and have a really heated debate.

I finished filming Fantastic Four (2005) last Christmas and I haven`t worked since then and I`m starting to feel a bit angsty and wondering when the next job will come. Of course, you have to have the belief that yes, something will come up but, the reality is, that you just never know. It`s that competitive out there.

There`s a physicality and confidence to Americans; they`re very present. That`s something I enjoy being around because it rubs off on you. Although an actor friend of mine visited recently and said, "It`s no wonder they write such terrible scripts these days, there`s no pain! Everything`s so nice you can`t be bothered.

I was probably doing more to pigeonhole myself as a Welshman and a Welsh actor than anyone else! A lot of the stuff I said in the past sounded defensive - a young man`s ideals about who I am and where I`m from. I realize I don`t have to force that on people, but just use it as a safety net, to stride out into the world knowing that I have a strong sense of identity. Because we`re all landlocked in this nation together and we should be celebrating it.

People in America and Hollywood are very good at pronouncing my name, to begin with. Socially, they're very adept at listening to somebody's name and repeating it, cleverly in the first couple of sentences so the name sticks to begin with.

I know there are some actors who are just brilliant at improvising and brilliant at just being in the moment and doing it there and then. I'm not one of those actors.

Being attractive, it's not something I do consciously. It's incredibly flattering that people think I appeal to women. But that was a gift from my parents.

As an actor, I've always said, half the audience is going to love you, half is going to hate you so just live with it. It's easier that way.

I'm really enjoying living in Los Angeles. It's a great city to live in. I'm living a very suburban domesticated lifestyle out there - a two bedroomed little bungalow with two cars, and we're just driving around, going to meetings here and there - it's lovely!

I could do an American accent, if I were immersed in the accent, meaning if I were living back in Los Angeles and rehearsing and auditioning the whole time.
