‘I’d love a cameo!’

Christo­pher Big­gins shares his mem­o­ries of play­ing Ossie with us

TV Times - - Interview -

al­ways feel proud when peo­ple re­mem­ber I played

ÔI

Ossie, and it was a fan­tas­tic ac­co­lade to be voted the most hated man on tele­vi­sion. I worked with a won­der­ful cast, and it was great see­ing Robin El­lis as Ross – we had been in sal­is­bury Rep to­gether when I was a drama stu­dent.

‘Would I like a cameo like Robin has as the Rev Halse? yes, it would be fun to make an ap­pear­ance. Ossie was very up­per class, so in­stead, I’d rather play a char­ac­ter like a cor­nish fish­er­man,

with a very good beard and come loom­ing in from the sea.’
