Jason Hughes Interview
Published: 23 April 2018 01:00
You were destined for a career in the sport at one stage, weren’t you?
“I wanted to be [a sportsman], I was a good rugby player and a good cricket player, too. I played for my county at cricket, and I went through to the boys’ clubs of the Wales squad. Had I not had my drama teacher at school, I think I would’ve ended up trying to go into playing rugby in some shape or form.”
You’ve previously said that you experienced burnout after seven years of traveling backward and forwards for Midsomer Murders. Why was that?
“[When I was filming] I got up at half-past four every morning, got into the shower, was in the car at five o’clock, drove to a train station to get a train from Brighton to Gatwick, where I’d then be driven to the set. Then I’d work 11-hour days before going back to Gatwick to get the train to Brighton. I’d get home at half-past nine at night and then get up at half-past four the following morning.
“The producers helped me out by offering me places to stay, and if there were heavy days, they’d put me up for a couple of nights here and there. That broke the week up, which was good, but essentially, getting up and doing that for eight or nine months of the year – I just couldn’t keep it up anymore.”
Are there any types of fitness that you’re into at the moment?
“I love yoga, I think it’s the most brilliant thing for your body and your mind. I go to this extraordinary yoga teacher called Jim Tarrant in Brighton and I think he’s just incredible – so much so, that if I know he’s not taking the class that week, I’ll skip it. I recently went on a yoga retreat in India with him, which was amazing.
“I also like to swim. I don’t like weights; with getting nearer to 50, it seems a bit of a false economy, because the moment you stop it all shrinks to nothing again. I’d rather do something like swim a couple of miles a week and be able to take a break from it.”
You’re a father to three children. What does being a dad mean to you?
“I think I’ve found myself by it. I’m not a guy of a million hobbies and I get involved with my family because my dad was away a lot when I was a kid; he worked abroad building paper mills, highways, bridges, and nuclear plants. Obviously, it was to provide for us, but the downside was that we never really saw him.
“I do myself out of work, because I’m told it’s going to happen in pockets of the country where I’d have to be away for three, four, five or six months, and I’m just not into it. I’d rather be near home. It’s what made Midsomer so tricky: I wanted to be a presence in their lives, and it was important that I was there.”
