5 Questions with Roger Gimblett

rogergimblettWhat is your favourite swear word?
At my age I just appear embarrassing when I swear…

What are you wearing?
The Uniform of a Second Lieutenant in the Royal Welsh Fusiliers.

What is love?
A term used in tennis matches (possibly also an emotion discovered between two somewhat repressed English poets in a War Hospital in 1917).

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure. I’m possibly biased but a HUGE number of stars- especially as we were in the bar by 10pm.

Is your new show going to be any good?
It apparently was rather good when we did it 6 years ago… of course my co-actor Patrick Magee is probably far too old to be playing Wilfred Owen now, so who knows?!!

Roger Gimblett plays Siegfried Sassoon in Not About Heroes by Stephen MacDonald.
