James Purefoy

James Purefoy has dropped some hints about his character in upcoming movie John Carter.

The actor is all set to take on the character of Kantos Kan in the new movie, which sees Taylor Kitsch take on the title character.

The movie sees Purefoy team up with an all star cast that also includes Dominic West, Willem Dafoe and Ciaran Hinds.

Speaking to Collider the actor said: "The character’s name is Kantos Kan, and he is an admiral of a big ship, called the Xavarian. He’s very close to Tardos Mors, who’s played by Ciarán Hinds, who is the Emperor or King of Helium.

"He’s a very cheeky, mischievous soldier/airman. He’s not in this film very much, in the first one.

"I think a lot of the characters in the first John Carter are established, but with the knowledge that they’re going to be bigger in the next two episodes of it.

"So, it’s a lovely character. He’s just very charming. He’s not frightened of getting involved in very sticky situations with John Carter.

"There’s a certain bravado about him. He’s a bit Errol Flynn-esque. He has a great lust for life and he’s a very positive character, in the film.

Purefoy has mixed and matched his roles so far this year moving from TV with Camelot and Injustice to movies such as Ironclad.

John Carter is released 9th March 2012.
