Personal Quote:

I never attended a drama school so I'm not a "proper" actor. Acting is good because it's open to everyone, with any type of career, this way they can bring their lifestyle to work with them.

Trivia:

He was asked to reprise his role as Arnold Rimmer in Red Dwarf (1992), because no other American actor had such a low opinion of himself for the part, but he declined, not wanting to spend a long time in America. See more »
