Robert Gillespie interview – Beginnings

It was a real privilege to be able to spend a few hours recently with actor/director Robert Gillespie and talk to him about his career.

His honesty and intelligence come through clearly, especially when he recalls his unhappy time at RADA and the problems he found with rep theatre.

I’ll be posting more soon about his The Consumer’s Guide To Religion sketch for That Was The Week That Was, his TV career, and his more recent stage work, including his two years with the RSC.

The first part of the interview can be seen here:
