Favourite actors and actresses


Recommended Posts

An actor worthy of mention here is Paddy Considine. Particularly as he is from Burton On Trent and therefore does a Midlands accent perfectly.

I particularly liked him in 'Dead Man's Shoes' which was on TV recently, but he was also really good in 'Le Donk...' and 'A Room For Romeo Brass'.

I remember John Pertwee and Sarah Jane opening the Wollaton Park Balloon Festival in the 70's.

Was anyone else there?

Used to see loads of balloons taking off from Wollaton Park & car park was FREE.

Sue Pollard is a lasting memory for me. I was in "Archies" one afternoon ( The Lord Roberts), it was a locked door keep- on- serving do when the pubs shut at 2.30. Sue was stood on a table singing Jesus Christ, Superstar. Brilliant afternoon !

It must have been around 1973.
