The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - REAL LIFE -

1 I was named Glenn af­ter my un­cle’s fi­ancée – they never mar­ried be­cause my un­cle died in World War II but she re­mained a dear friend of the fam­ily. It’s usu­ally a man’s name, so it does cause con­fu­sion at times! 2 When I was lit­tle, I was very, very shy, but I have learned to over­come it. I still don’t like go­ing into a room full of peo­ple that I don’t know, but now I ask them ques­tions so they talk and I don’t have to. 3 I’m a ter­ri­ble shop­per – I don’t care about fash­ion and the whole process of fig­ur­ing out what to wear to public events just in­tim­i­dates me. Ac­tors are sup­posed to be fash­ion plates, and I re­sent it. 4 An­i­mals are a big part of my life. I grew up in the coun­try­side sur­rounded by an­i­mals and now I have dogs, cats, horses, fish, mice... If you come over to our house you’ll leave it cov­ered in an­i­mal hair! 5 When I think of my granny, I think of the mink stole she wore ev­ery­where. I don’t wear fur my­self be­cause it doesn’t feel right, but I wouldn’t crit­i­cise any­one else for it – if only in mem­ory of her.
