And when they saw me, I'd like to dazzle them, as a star dazzle - as for the paraphernalia surrounding a star, that doesn't interest me much. I quite like my privacy. See more »

Trivia:

Was one of the cast members of cult children's programme Play Away (1971), from which clips featuring him are regularly repeated on "Before They Were Famous..." type programmes. See more »
