Batman star announces: Ready to retire

British film star Gary Oldman is ready for retirement.

He tells this in an interview The Times.

“I’ve had an enviable career, but careers fade and I have other interests besides acting. When you’re young, you think you can achieve it all, but over time the years pass,’ he says in the interview.

The 64-year-old actor is currently in the TV series ‘Slow Horses’ on Apple TV+.

“I will be 65 next year, and 70 is just around the corner. I don’t want an active career when I turn 80. I will be very happy, honored and privileged to go out as Jackson Lamb (his character in ‘Slow Horses’, ed.) and then put the career on the shelf.”

However, fans of both the British actor and the series can rejoice that Oldman has already signed a contract for seasons three and four of the series.

In 2018, Gary Oldman won his first Oscar statuette for his portrayal of former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in the film ‘The Darkest Hour’, and he is known for his role as James Gordon in ‘The Dark Night’ and Sirius Black in ‘ The Harry Potter movies.
