Well, the actor admits that he is an Anglophile and loves everything about England – from the culture, the language, the rich history to the architecture and the people. He is steeped in English history. Of course, like all Anglophiles, he loves a visit to the Buckingham Palace often. But just a visit was not enough – he wanted to stay in this treasure trove of culture and be a part of it. That’s why he went house hunting.
When he arrived at Somerset, he immediately knew that it was the place for him. It has wonderful towns and amazing people. Glastonbury is there too and that’s a plus. So, he bought a place there and lives there often.
For Nicolas Cage, America has not been very close to his heart. Despite being American, he often feels sad about the atrocities meted to the Native Americans. According to him, America is its soil.
In England, despite being a visitor, Nicolas Cage feels the deep tug of ancestry.
