CHARITY SPECIAL: Brand New Denise Gough Interview

March 31, 2017

With just over a week to go before Angels in America opens at the NT, I have a brand new Denise Gough interview ready to release into the world. I know you want it…

But there are just over three weeks to go until I run the London Marathon for the Actors’ Children’s Trust and I have so far raised only 40% of my £1500 target.

So, I’m holding the new episode hostage.

Help me get to 100%, and I’ll release Denise. A kind of a trade. Let’s call it a special thank you.

And to help us get there together, all profits from the sale of the Honest Actors’ opening night cards between now and the end of April will be added to the total. That’s a minimum of £1 for every single card sold.

So, get your opening night cards, give to the Actors’ Children’s Trust, and help resolve our hostage situation, all at the same time, visit

Or if you’d like to boost the ransom via JustGiving, you can do that at

Thanks to everyone who has pitched in so far! You’re keeping me going in what has been a difficult few weeks of training. I fell off the wagon for a bit and didn’t run at all for about three weeks, but am getting back into it now, and all being well should be able to cross the line in under four hours. There’s just another 120 miles to run before I can begin the process of recovery and relax in the knowledge that I will never, ever put myself through this again.

For now though, we all need to stay focussed on one thing: #ReleaseDenise


Interview recorded at Spotlight on 3rd October 2016.


In Memoriam: John Rogan (1938-2017)

March 21, 2017

This morning, I'm very sad to hear of the passing of the incandescent John Rogan. I interviewed him at his home a little under two years ago and left with a spring in my step. Here he was, in a wheelchair and heavily reliant on the care and assistance of others, talking about his life - and his health - as a great gift. Philosophical doesn't begin to cover it. Thanks, John, for the perspective. 

I'm away from home at the monent, so haven't been able to re-record an intro, but hope this rough edit will fill the gap in the meantime. Here is 26 minutes of audio I'm immensely proud of, and which put a smile on my face once again as I listened back this morning.

To John.
