Actor Paddy Considine has said that being diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome has allowed him "to make sense" of things.

Speaking to the Sunday Telegraph, he said: "For a few weeks after the diagnosis, I was wandering around thinking, 'Who the hell am I?' But naming my problem has helped me a lot."

"It's allowed me to make sense of so many things I didn't understand before - and is allowing me to move forward with my life."

"I'd been working with an acting coach who has now become a good friend."

"We'd been trying lots of improvisational techniques to help me with some of the problems I experience. But it's a very slow process."
