I'm probably at an age when I shouldn't really wish my life away. In fact it was pointed out to me earlier this evening, by one who claims a certain affection for me, that it is an extravagence I can ill afford to indulge in....laughing!
However, I care not, because on Saturday I'm going down to Stratford to see Twelfth Night, and Richard Wilson in a role he was surely born to play - Malvolio.
Richard is best known for his much-loved role of Victor Meldrew in the TV comedy series One Foot in the Grave for which he has won many awards including the British Comedy Awards Top Television Comedy Actor Award and two BAFTAs. His is a long and distinguished career as both actor and director in theatre, film and TV.
The strong cast includes Nancy Carroll as Viola and Alexandra Gilbreath as Olivia.
Here are some clips of One Foot in the Grave, showing Richard acting with a touch of Malvolio about him even in this TV series.....I DON'T believe it!....surely the war cry of we ageing baby boomers...!
I can hardly wait.....
