What Will Kemp Watches - He is a Star Wars Fan

Regarding his favorite movies, Kemp said, "I have been in preparation for a job that I am in at the moment, so to be honest, I haven't gone to the cinema as much as I would like so my research is character-driven. 

I absolutely love watching 'Jockey,' where Clifton Collins Jr. is outstanding in it. I highly recommend it to all. It's about a retired racing jockey."

His favorite series to binge-watch are "Ozark" and "Andor." "I loved 'Andor' because I am a big fan of 'Star Wars'," he said.

He shared that he recently visited Greece and was in Corfu this year and he loved it. "Greek food is phenomenal too," he added. "The tzatziki and the feta cheese is a cheat meal. I was able to do some scuba diving there, which I enjoy."
