BRY­DON AND BEAR BOND­ING

Caernarfon Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

CO­ME­DIAN Rob Bry­don res­cued a sheep as he re­turned to his home­land along­side Bear Grylls for an ad­ven­ture in Snow­do­nia.

Last week’s ITV’s Bear’s Mis­sion With Rob Bry­don showed the pair ex­plor­ing the North Wales coast where they were forced to climb into a gi­ant sink­hole af­ter a sheep got stuck.

The Gavin And Stacey star said of the res­cue: “That was an ex­pe­ri­ence.

“He is strong, he can bite and he can kick. Bear as­sures me he would be stuck here, they don’t get out on their own so we have done him a favour.”

Bry­don com­pared the Welsh ad­ven­ture to leav­ing the Cubs af­ter a week as a six-year-old “be­cause it was too tough”.

He added: “I like the out­doors, I used to love build­ing dens and I climbed trees and would make rope swings on trees, that was my big thing.”

Bry­don also re­flected on his late emer­gence into the world of com­edy, telling Grylls: “I’m al­ways telling my kids about my fail­ures and em­bar­rass­ments, that’s a big thing.

“I’m al­ways telling them about the jobs I go up for and don’t get, au­di­ences that don’t par­tic­u­larly take to me. Al­most all ac­tors suf­fer in­cred­i­ble knock-backs... but they have to keep their self-be­lief.

“I took years to break through in com­edy. I was 35. I did two shows in 2000, one was called Mar­ion And Ge­off and I did another show called Hu­man Re­mains. They won awards and they got me no­ticed and then all of a sud­den it just changed, it was re­mark­able, sud­denly peo­ple were in­ter­ested.”
