Fox has been embroiled in controversy since appearing on BBC1’s Question Time, when he accused an audience member of being “ racist ” for suggesting he was a privileged white male.

Laurence Fox is the son of actor James Fox (The Servant; Performance) and a member the extended acting dynasty which also includes (uncle) Edward; and cousins Emelia and Freddie. For nine seasons, he starred as Detective Sergeant James Hathaway in the Inspector Morse spin off Lewis.

“I’d just laugh and laugh…”

Speaking to Talk Radio, the actor said that he was not expecting people to “kick off” over his remarks on the BBC debate programme. He added that you “can’t be a wokeist without blaming everybody for being racist”.

He said: “I am at the bottom of the intersectional ladder, that’s for sure. But she was being racist. I didn’t raise colour at all. 

“She said ‘you’re a straight white male’ and technically that’s racist… so I was surprised it created such drama.”

However he added: “I think it created drama because the British are patient and we’re tired of being told we’re racist by the people we pay money for and support and generally applaud, and so it hurts a little extra when you’re called racist on top of it.”

Fox, son of actor James Fox and nephew of Edward Fox, said that he was fine with people “taking a pop” at him over his views, but added that he stops listening when the criticism spills over into vitriol.

He said: “We live in the most tolerant, progressive society, but then you go we have to have something we’re upset about, so they get upset about oppression.”

The actor, who was married to Billie Piper, also suggested that being “woke” is a middle-class thing because they “need to feel oppressed as well”.

On Sunday, former Lewis star Fox also hit out at black and working-class actors for complaining about the industry once they have “five million quid in the bank”.

He told The Delingpod podcast: “The most annoying thing is, the minute a black actor – it’s the same with working-class actors –  the minute they’ve got five million quid in the bank, every interview they do is about how racism is rampant and rife in the industry.

“And with working-class actors, ‘There’s not enough working-class actors’. You weren’t saying that when you didn’t have a f****** pot to p*** in were you?

“You weren’t standing up for the working class actors until you’re now no longer materially working class.”
