Ac­tor is still play­ing to his strengths

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

I don’t know re­ally. Peo­ple say that af­ter 17 it’s quite dif­fi­cult to lose a lo­cal ac­cent.

I was 22 when I left Denby Dale, so yes, I’ve been in Lon­don for 46 years now but you per­haps wouldn’t think it from my ac­cent. I’m quite proud of it. They say play to your strengths.

Do you keep up with the news in Hud­der­s­field?

I do sim­ply be­cause I’m in touch with my sis­ters and neph­ews and nieces. I’m aware of what’s go­ing on.” And the Royal In­fir­mary? I knew they were go­ing to per­haps close the Royal In­fir­mary, it’s ba­nanas. I don’t know what’s hap­pen­ing to the NHS al­to­gether, they’re strapped.

But it’s such won­der­ful in­sti­tu­tion. To close hos­pi­tals seems counter in­tu­itive at the mo­ment when there’s much more need for them.

And Hud­der­s­field Town foot­ball club?

I’m not re­ally a foot­ball fan or sup­porter, and I can count the num­ber of matches I’ve been on one hand, but I’m very proud of them.

I was de­lighted when they got in the Pre­mier League and stayed there.

Good luck to them. Let’s hope they stay there.
