“I consider myself primarily an actor because I’ve worked very hard to be involved in cinema, but you know as well as I do, you can’t just stick to that,” says Benn Northover speaking with Tim Blanks in the July 2015 issue of Interview. Gifted in myriad ways not least of which include looks and dramatic ability, Benn possesses an insatiable curiosity for the cinema in all its aspects as evidenced in voice-over narration of a recent documentary on Marlon Brando to his longtime involvement as an advisory board member of Anthology Film Archives. The story running in the latest Interview was photographed by Steven Meisel and styled by Karl Templer, the former for whom Benn expresses immense admiration. “He is an artist. I wouldn’t even call him a fashion photographer…Steven and I share a great love for reportage photography, people like Saul Leiter and Helen Levitt and even Robert Frank. His ability to see character within an individual is so sharp.” Benn’s sharpness is clear to see in this story whether captured in light by Steven Meisel or in word by Tim Blanks.
