Interview with Tim Murphy

by - 17:35

Timothy Murphy is an Irish born American actor best known for playing Ian Doyle in Criminal Minds and Galen in Sons of Anarchy. However the NCIS: Los Angeles fandom will know him for playing Issak Sidorov, a Russian arms dealer in late Season 4. If you've seen the Season 4 Finale titled 'Descent' you'd have seen Sidorov and his men torture Sam & Deeks.

I was lucky enough to interview him last week so enjoy....

So Season 4 ended with your character torturing Sam & Deeks, how was it to film those scenes?

Easy...I love torturing people ;)

You've obviously had to spend a bit of time with LL Cool J & Eric Christian Olsen. How were they to hang around with? the name suggests

Did you spend time with the rest of the cast?

Just the ones I work with...not much are there to work. But they are all very professional and we have a good time.

Are there any spoilers you can give us about the Season 5 premiere?
