In his most recent interview with Insider, McTavish said, “It is strange that I seem to spend a great deal of my career now just riding around on horseback, wearing cloaks, carrying candles, armed with a sword. Obviously, they are very different in lots of ways, but what the fantasy world allows you is a sort of latitude that you don’t get in some other genre. So, if I was sat behind a desk as Dijkstra with a cellphone, it wouldn’t be as interesting.”

McTavish went on to express how much he loves the fantasy genre, “I am a big fan of that genre so the opportunity to perform in it has been absolutely fantastic. That’s what I want to do, so it’s been very fortuitous. So I started with ‘The Hobbit,’ I suppose, and I’ve never worn a suit since.”
