Dear all, just a quick note telling you that Nat is currently scheduled to appear on BBC Radio Two's "Steve Wright in the Afternoon" show on December 8, 2016 starting from 14:00 (GMT). The show will run for three hours with Nathaniel Parker and Phil Daniels, Mo Farah and Anna Richardson also dropping in. Steve and his team are joined by Nat and & Phil who can currently be seen starring in the West End in James Graham's political drama "This House", directed by Jeremy Herrin. Mo Farah will run into the studio to talk about his DVD documentary "No Easy Mile" and Anna Richardson will discuss her Channel 4 show, "Supershoppers".
As I begin my run at The Garrick Theatre in This House, who should I see seated in the audience...?????
Our glorious and indeed glamorous webmistress. Well at least I think it is. I am sure I will find out soon! This gave me quite a lift really. I had spoken to a lovely fan outside the stage door earlier, who had come all the way form Newcastle, and she said she read this website. This obviously made me feel a little guilty about not contributing enough to it. But then Jessika catches my eye in the first 5 mins of the play, and she must have come all the way form Germany. Blimey!! I will try to catch her straight after the show, and before I set off up the stairs for our 1st preview drinks in the Sir Kenneth Brannagh Gold Room. ( I mean, honestly).
The War Poets Collection as part of Edinburgh Napier University has been undergoing refurbishment works to mark 100 years since Craiglockhart Hydropathic was used as a hospital to treat shell-shocked officers during World War One. Books and other historical items are put on display within the university's Craiglockhart campus. A new bronze sculpture of Wilfred Owen which has been donated to the War Poets Collection by award-winning artist Anthony Padgett has also been added to the collection.
As part of the relaunch, a light projection, paying tribute to the building's history during the Great War, will illuminate the facade of the campus building from November 2nd until November 4th, 2016.
What a privileged life I lead. I know my contributions recently have turned more political. Sorry if that puts some of you off, but I can't help myself. And I will, I promise, return to more personal acting topics, when I return to work soon, with the marvellous Jeremy Herrin.
As I said I start work again soon. Before the play begins rehearsal I record another Bond book. Young James has been very busy. Fast moving action and fun, for me at least. I do love having a go at the voices. There's a good twist on my Charles Gray impression coming up.
Just wanted to say thank you for all the really lovely messages. I keep forgetting to say thank you, and I hope you don't think I take it all for granted, I don't, I really appreciate it.
Going to an Olivier Party this Monday at the V&A. Very posh. First Olivier do I have ever been to. Didn't get invited to the ceremony this year, which I have to say was a little disappointing, but hey ho. I am thrilled to go on Monday & hope to see a whole host of stars and people I really admire. I'll let you know how it goes. Hehehehe
