Hello again!

Welcome to Dominic Cooper Online! We were previously at dominic-cooper.com and we have had a few host problems. We lost all the content, re-found it, and now re-building the site.  Of course with a re-opening we got a lovely new layout.

Image by Image, we are organising the gallery and restoring it to its former glory. We have re-organised the posts, a lot have been deleted due to linking to the old gallery and images being lost. You can also view all the press articles, by the press link above (this contains all the interviews that Dominic has done). So I will make a small video archive, and develop new pages.  So look out.

Dominic Cooper says his social life is a world away from the bawdy antics of his latest character, notorious rogue the Earl of Rochester.

Speaking at the press night of The Libertine — based on the true story of Restoration poet and rake John Wilmot — he told the Standard: “I’m nothing compared to this character. Those days are long gone or never really existed.

“I like the side of him that he is a man who is loving life and enjoying it, and sees the ludicrousness in himself. It doesn’t take a genius to work out that you can do little more than enjoy your short time here.”

He added: “They would drink only booze, they would drink nothing else. They would be inebriated the whole time. I think when you live life in that manner and you have the privilege that he did, it’s a lethal recipe.”

Cooper, 38, revealed he had been offered the part in Stephen Jeffreys’s play earlier in his career but felt too young to take it on. “I always wanted to do this role. I didn’t quite know what I was taking on when I forced my way into the casting department. I think last time I was approached to play it I was too young, it was about 10 years ago.

“When I finally got round to reading it I realised how offensive it was. I found much more sympathy for the man having gone through this project.” In 2006 the play was adapted into a movie with Johnny Depp in the title role.

Cooper said he had tried to find humanity in the character: “It’s very easy to approach the idea that he is a sexist, ego maniac, narcissist. That was somewhere I approached it from in the beginning. But I always like to look in depth at who they are and why they have become that person. You’ve got to find the qualities in them.”

The womanising poet would be disappointed in modern man, he added: “Men haven’t changed a great deal. Look what’s going on in the world at the moment. It always astounds me, and I think it would astound Rochester, how we haven’t moved on very far at all.”

The Libertine runs at Theatre Royal Haymarket until December 3

After a seven year hiatus, a smouldering Dominic Cooper is back on the West End Stage

Somehow Dominic Cooper and I end up talking about “kamikaze sperm”. The actor had been telling me how inadequate his school’s sex ed was. “It was a joke! The banana and the condom… I know so little about the female anatomy. I don’t even know where things to do with the most obvious [elements] of birth are.”

Hang on. Cooper — a man who’s been voted the sexiest man alive — has just confessed to being intimately ignorant? And so I hear myself making a similar admission in solidarity: that I only recently discovered much of male ejaculate may be “fighter sperm”, designed to prevent rivals fertilising eggs. “They’re defenders to help the strong ones,” he nods. “Why haven’t we made a film about that?”

Before I met the 38-year-old I’d imagined him to have swagger, the Hollywood equivalent of the bad boy all the girls had a crush on at school, who rendered them unable to speak simply by smiling at them. I was wrong. Sure, he has those smouldering brown eyes that look mascara-lined but he’s self-deprecating (“as soon as ego rears its ugly head you’re not a decent actor any more”). He’s a great conversationalist too: opinions fire out of his mouth like balls out of a tennis shooter.

For newcomers to the series, the Queen of Azeroth doesn’t really exist in the games, but Negga still holds her own as the rock keeping Dominic Cooper’s King Llane focused on the task at hand. She’s a warm presence in a movie full of relatively stilted, cold performances (on the human side). In this deleted scene, which will be available on the home video release September 27, we see Negga moments after visiting Garona in the dungeon, telling her husband and king that she accomplished her mission of getting the half-orc on the side of the humans.

The scene is short, but has its fan service: the throne room looks nearly identical to the games.
