“He’s charming firm or not talking about his domestic life – “I just can’t”, he says, pleadingly – but the general sense is that he’s incredibly happy and settled with Sophie Hunter, whom he married in 2015, would like to add to his collection of children (he has two: Kit, three, and Hal, one) and has found a pleasant life/work balance after the first rush of fame: “I know everyone thinks I’m in everything, but I actually have quite a few lovely spaces now. Because [his children’s childhood]are such a precious time and you want to be there for every heartbeat .Wark makes me a better person – but I also want time when I’m just focusing on them.” On a day-to-day basis how much time is actually spent “being” famous? When does the fame intrude? “If the average day is me at home in the morning and evening, and working during the day, then the cab driver will be like “Oh it’s you”. And if I’m walking down the street – I mean on the way here I had someone do a double-take and walk into lamp-post, which is always funny. Most of  it’s benign. It’s not like walking onto the internet – where it feels like there’s a constant queue of people waiting to throw rotten tomatoes at you. I prefer the real word to the internet. It’s much kinder”

“When I work I almost always bring my family with me. As of yet I’ve not been away from them a week. Since my second son was born it has been a weekend, I think. The time with the children is so precious that I prioritize them at any time. For me it is very clear: work is work, family is family. When I get home, I leave anything related to work outside the door.”
