WILDsound Writing and Film Festival Review

Born: October 27, 1953 in Bradford, Yorkshire, England, UK

I didn’t really capitalise on that early success because I had high artistic ideals and they didn’t involve commercial cinema. That said, becoming an international film star takes its toll – there’s a price to be paid for being recognised all the time, so I’m quite happy not to be.

When you’ve had an Academy Award nomination for the film Equus (1977), the work comes rolling in. So I had my chance to be a film star, but I resisted fame. I had peculiar high artistic ideals in those days. There is some regret about turning down Hollywood style-fame now, but only really financially.
