A bit late posting this. A wee Q & A with Paul Mac in last weekend's Observer.

Quite an interesting little piece. I felt I can relate to quite a few of his answers. Interesting to read that he originally had the Sharpe role but that an accident resulted in Sean Bean taking over the role, I didn't know that!

Couldn't see him playing Sharpe though,.. he's a bit effiminate ain't he,.. Paul that is, not Sharpe,..

and his second in command would always be calling him a "Perfumed Ponce !!!" :lol:

Yeah, but on the other hand he could stab a Hare with his sword for his troops dinner, pointing to it saying "here hare here".

He didn't want the Sharpe role anyway . Play a bloody soldier? They'd make him cut his hair off.

So what? You'd lose a leg!
... followed by yet another anecdote about his sensitive crimes in a punt with a chap called Norman, who had red hair and a book of poetry stained with the butter drips from crumpets.

Ooh er! I've just checked the guest list for next week's NEC memorabilia thing (I never miss it) and Paul McGann will be there! I'm not worthy. I hope that some of you can make it. :thumbup:

He was incredibly pretty, a bit thin, tired-looking and strung-out, possibly more Withnail than Marwood, unbelievably kind to everyone who wanted to shake his hand, take his picture, bore his arse off....and just very, very nice. He has mind-blowing eyes. He accepted a (badly) hand-written Dr Who script from an autistic lump who had bits of gunk and dinner in his hair, with grace and kindness. The queue to meet him went on forever, I've never seen anything like it, they had to call for security and chains. He's a hugely charismatic man. And he went out of his way to make everyone feel special. What a legend!
