Tim Roth has revealed he has decided to take a small step back from films.
The Lie To Me actor admitted that juggling Sky1's hit TV series alongside filming movies was a struggle.
"You have to pace yourself or you'll burn out - I've spoken to some actors who did burn out, it takes a lot out of you," the actor said.
He laughed: "I did a little independent film on my hiatus between seasons but it almost killed me."
The actor said he had learned to relax and reject offers of work during his rare breaks from filming in the US.
"I think in the end you have to commit to what you're doing, and part of that commitment is when you do have some time off, you take it because it is fast-paced," he said. "At the moment I like that pace, I like being exhausted at the end of the day and feeling like you've got something done. I think it's a good feeling."
