At what stage in your career did you realise that acting could be something you do professionally?
It was after I took the part of 'Andrew' in 'Beyond a Joke', a Herbert Benfield farce, as an amatuer. The audiences were so enthusiastic and supportive that reports in the local newspapers believed that I must have had professional experience.
But more importantly, it was a chap called Christopher Wilson, a friend from my early teens and totally honest about everything, who told me I should turn 'pro' who finally made my mind up for me. He has been forced to see all of my work since I 'blame' him for all this hard work!!
