Jane Garvey interviews The Outlaws star Gamba Cole. The series follows seven strangers from different walks of life who are forced together to compete a community service sentence in Bristol.


The series is written by and stars comic genius Stephen Merchant. Cole discusses what it is like to work alongside Merchant – “He’s super funny. He’s a genius. He’s meticulous.” Cole discusses the liberation he felt when working with Merchant, who was not precious about his writing and allowed Cole to bring his own ideas to the table.

The series also stars Hollywood legend Christopher Walken and comedy-actress Jessica Gunning, who Cole was originally starstruck by. Cole celebrates the beauty of filming outside of London and reveals that his big career ambition is to star in a Marvel film.
