When Time Was A Playful Child
Second and final poetry collection as ebook and print edition by the late Tom O’Connor. Illustrations by James Olley. Free audiobook also available.
I have had some really wonderful people help me especially when I was starting out. Geoffrey and Hazel Sykes at the Manchester Youth Theatre, Patricia Leventon and Gerard Reidy at the Phoenix Contemporary Theatre School, Peter Coxhead, Brian Astbury, Terry Meech, Jude Tisdall, Claudette Williams, Geoffrey Coleman at Mountview, David Harris at the Actors Co LCTS, Andrew Tidmarsh, Marcus Markou then Steve Miller, Sasha Regan, Ben De Wynter at the Union Theatre, Andrew Jarvis at the LCTS and Mary Hammond. I did some commercials with Declan Lowney, Scott Corbett and Mark Denton for example and they were very kind to me. You know you don’t forget those that help you. I prefer to appreciate the wonderful people along the way.
I do admire certain actors. George C. Scott, Gérard Depardieu, Jack Nicholson, Spencer Tracy, Alec Guinness, Philip Seymour Hoffman, the tenors Jon Vickers, Max Lorenz, Giuseppe Giacomini, of course Daniel Day Lewis, Laurence Olivier...I dislike fakery and hollow celebrity. I mean you have to earn the right to stand on the stage, in front of the camera, you have to work it. Anything less is disrespectful.
