In 2002 Farr was interviewed on BBC News in a section on the Tintin exhibition at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. He appeared in 2003 in the film documentary, Tintin and I. He now lives in London with his wife and daughter.

Farr is bilingual in English and French. He wrote a French version of Tintin The Complete Companion at the same time as he wrote the English version.
