Personal Quote:

There was never any career plan. When Red Dwarf (1988) started I thought we were doing a curious little sitcom on BBC2, I didn't think I was becoming an actor. I didn't see that 21 years later I'd still be talking about it, let alone filming a new one. For me, everything's always been an accident. See more »

Trivia:

In 1994, he was falsely accused of rape and spend three and a half months in custody. During his imprisonment, he was attacked by another prisoner with a makeshift knife, which severed an artery on his neck. He was acquitted over the claims in 1995. See more »
