A Spanish main man

Oct 29 2004 By Gordon Barr, The Evening Chronicle

Having three plum roles in one Royal Shakespeare Company season is enough to make any actor envious. And Joseph Millson, ex-dishy doctor in ITV's Peak Practice, is certainly enjoying his stint in the RSC's Spanish Season.

Only problem is, with three roles to play, and with the productions playing alternate nights, he sometimes has trouble remembering who he is. "I've had to give my characters little mannerisms to remember them by," laughs Joseph, during a well-earned break during The Spanish Season's Stratford run.

Baffling, but bound to be a hit.

Sept 7 , 2004

(From The Northern Echo)


LOVE is in the air for Royal Shakespeare Company debutantes Joseph Millson and Rebecca Johnson, who play romantic leads in three of four fascinating Spanish Golden Age plays heading for Newcastle in November.

But don't mention heartthrobs to Millson, who feels that playing dishy Dr Sam Morgan in ITV1's Peak Practice did him few favours.

He says: "I never looked anything like my character. Short and chubby on screen and tall, lanky and dirty in real life. Bizarrely I did a few months on EastEnders and I had one week of my life when I found out what those poor buggers go through.

Coventry Evening Telegraph  July 2004

NAPPIES and sleepless nights are in store for former Peak Practice heartthrob Joseph Millson - and he can't wait.

The actor, who played Dr Sam Morgan in the ITV medical drama, is about to become a father for the second time and is looking forward to being a daddy all over again.

Joseph and his actress wife Caroline Fitzgerald already have one young daughter, two-year-old Jessica, and are looking forward to welcoming a new addition to their family.

"I'm a very hands-on dad," beams Joseph. "I'll happily tackle everything - except the breast feeding and I'd do that as well if I could."

Joseph is currently making his Royal Shakespeare Company debut in Stratford while waiting for impending fatherhood.

Huddersfield Daily Examiner interview May 2004


Joseph Millson, who recently turned 30, is perhaps best known for playing Dr Sam Morgan in Peak Practice and Jason, Lynn Slater's ex-fiance in EastEnders. He's hoping to return to TV next year, but until then will be appearing in the Royal Shakespeare Company's Spanish Golden Age season in Stratford-Upon-Avon.

He and his actress wife Caroline Fitzgerald have a two-year-old daughter Jessica.

IF MONEY WAS NO OBJECT, WHERE WOULD YOU SPEND YOUR PERFECT HOLIDAY, AND WITH WHOM? "I have already been on the perfect holiday. It was during a brief period in our lives when we had money. We went on a proper, no-expense-spared holiday to Barbados. It was heaven on Earth."

Mill On The Floss interview March 2001

Actor who has reached peak!

From the archive, first published Thursday 15th Mar 2001.

THE ACTOR who played the disgraced Dr Sam Morgan in the ITV drama, Peak Practice, will be strutting the boards at the Everyman Theatre next week.

Joseph Millson is to star in an adaptation by the Shared Experience Theatre Company of George Eliot's classic novel Mill on the Floss.

Millson comes to Cheltenham after departing from the TV series in January after his character was revealed to have stolen funds from his surgery.

Now the versatile actor who plays eight parts in Mill on the Floss is delighted to be off camera and in front of an audience.

He said: "The two mediums are very different but equally enjoyable. I am especially pleased to be back in Cheltenham again, having met my wife Caroline Fitzgerald on stage in Salad Days in 1997."

Set in the 19th Century, Mill on the Floss is the story of wild and headstrong Maggie Tulliver who rebels against conventional Victorian society.

The adaptation uses the innovate technique of splitting the character of Maggie into three parts played by three different actresses from immaturity to womanhood.

Passionate and powerful, the play aims to sweep audiences through a torrent of differing emotions.

Mary Ann Evans, the woman behind the pseudonym George Eliot is thought to have based Mill on the Floss on her own childhood, as like Maggie she had a father who adored her and a close relationship with an older brother.

She too battled against Victorian conventions when she chose to live `in sin' with a married man who could not get a divorce."

After appearing at the Everyman the cast will go on to the West End run and performances in Washington DC and China.

The show runs from Tuesday March 20 to Saturday March 24 and starts at 7.45pm with two matinees. For tickets and further information contact the Box Office on 01242 572573.
