DAVID FIELD - Duxton Chevalier

Duxton Chevalier is an enigmatic but menacing character. His warm, sympathetic personal attributes are forever counterpointed by outbursts of uncontrollable vileness.

Comments David: "Duxton Chevalier is a very corporate animal, driven by money and profit. He’s incredibly friendly until something or someone upsets him. Then he turns into a bit of a psychopath. He actually carries an axe in his bag! As a character he was huge fun to play. In fact I’ve been waiting for a character like this since I started acting!" The role was a fairly physical one, something that David took on board with great relish: "I trained as an acrobat when I first started acting, and this was the first chance I had to use some of that training. I really enjoyed the fact that I had the opportunity to perform my own stunts. It was very exhilarating, very exciting and of course we had a huge amount of fun." Co-starring in Mr ACCIDENT is the first movie role in which David Field has been able to show his incredible range as a comedy actor.
