In n 2012 indie action Film Offender, Joe Cole punches a police officer in the face, then knees another in his stomach. In the gruesome horror Green Room, he chokes neo - Nazi skinhead into a state of unconsciousness. In Last year's acclaimed prison drama Prayer Before Dawn, he took beating after beating, and delivered his fair share too, from the confines of a Thai prison. And as the youngest of three Shelby brothers in the BBC crime series Peaky Blinders, for which 30 - year - old is perhaps best known, he blows up train, robs someone at gunpoint and stabs a man in the eye. It been quite therapeutic playing those roles, says Cole, because you can be a bit of a lunatic, and people applaud you, rather than cuff you and putting you behind bars. The Southwest London actor, who stars in the new Channel 4 comedy drama Pure, has the kind of face that has been described by the Observer as angelic, and the Guardian as weirdly cherubic. So it is strange that he ends up attracting parts where it so often takes pummelling, or curls into a troubled snarl as he pummels someone else. But it is precisely this juxtaposition, flicker of fear, trauma or indeed rage sitting just behind that veil of innocence, that makes Cole so compelling to watch. Cole doesn't play baddies, he insists from the set of Gareth Evans ' forthcoming Sky / HBO series Gangs of London. He just often draws characters with dark, aggressive tendencies. There is a physical element to some of those roles, he says in his Estuary lilt. I find it quite easy to connect to that side of me on a deeper level, and summon emotion and aggression. I could really feel that. You can really let yourself go. After roles in Bill and Holby City, rites of passage for any British upstart, Cole's first taste of this kind of character was as charming reprobate Luke in a few episodes of Skins. Role felt like fate. It was while watching a British teen drama series several years earlier that Cole, having failed to do well in school, first realised he could be an actor. I remember watching that show, he recall, thinking, that's where I wanna be. I 've got enough life experience and emotional baggage that I could bring to roles. I find it quite inspiring, because it was quite revolutionary at the time. He 'd lost his way before that, though. I was getting into trouble, he said of his teenage years, and I wasn't focusing on what I should have been focusing on. When you are teenager, you re figuring out your place in the world, and for me, it was in my head that if I didn't go to university, I was some sort of failure, and that I wouldn't amount to very much in this life. After failing to get grades he needed for university, he took the sixth form, where he ended up in the same year as his younger brother.
