Third time lucky in TV shows for once-hot movie actor Joseph Fiennes?


Despite having two of his TV shows cancelled after just one season, actor Joseph Fiennes is still enthusiastic about working in the medium.

"I don't want to say that film is a dinosaur - it's not and I love it. Although there are arguments that it's dead, I don't know if that's true.

"But I think that television has reinvented itself, and I think that's because of the writing."

Fiennes, 42, stars as a senior Catholic priest in charge of an asylum in American Horror Story: Asylum, now showing on demand on SingTel mio TV Channel 822.
