"I love stage because it's immediate... and I love doing TV, it's just a different discipline and you've just got to trust the director," Cam says of the differences between stage and TV work for him as a performer.
"The whole concept of that title," Cam says, "Was that I'm meant to be this man - this macho patriarch, pack leader, dad, alpha dog sort of guy and I'm just not bulletproof."
Nor has he ever been it would seem. Not one to shy away from sticking the boot into himself, Cam's quick to admit he was such a naughty boy in his twenties he's not sure how he's going to have a leg to stand on when it comes to laying down the law with his own kids.
"At the start it was a lot less disciplined I think because I was young and you're constantly trying to turn over material," he says, "Now if you're sort of writing a show there is a real process to it, but I can't do it at home, like my office is now a nursery. It's good though because I have to book time at a library to go and I know I have a four hour window in that time to do work."
All that work has definitely paid off as Cam's fan-base is strong and just keeps growing. Not that he'd like to admit that, as he confessed to me after our interview it feels weird to talk so much about himself and do the 'hard sell' for his shows.
