'The Krays' actor Martin Kemp wouldn't have wanted to play both the infamous siblings in the movie

Martin Kemp wouldn't have wanted to play both Kray twins on film.

The Spandau Ballet star - who starred with his brother Gary Kemp as infamous siblings Ronnie and Reggie Kray in 1990 biopic 'The Krays' - isn't sure new biopic 'Legend', which sees Tom Hardy playing both brothers, have done the right thing with their casting.

He said: "Being really honest, I'm not sure if one actor playing two parts turns me on. I always find I sit there trying to find the join and how they've done it and I find that quite distracting but if anyone can do it he can do it.

"I don't think I would have wanted to do it. I think it's a trap that you can fall into because I think you can want to do it to test yourself if you could do it as an actor but I think it's a little bit of a trap."

Because it's been so long since he worked on 'The Krays', Martin feels very "removed" from the project.

He said: "I'm a fan of all those gangster films. We shot our film such a long time ago now that I'm kind of removed from it, it's almost as if someone else shot it."
