Seven Years From Now: 22/01/93

SEVEN YEARS FROM NOW…‘In today’s first performance of The Gingerbread Man, Colin (as Salt) had his head smashed open, live on stage, by the giant teacup. Being a pro', he went on with the show - his white sailor’s hat rapidly turning red. In his stripey blue and white top he looked like he’d just walked out of a butcher’s. Or, as Kat said, a meat packing factory. We both got a bit queasy about it. My thumbs went funny, too, just like they do when I see operations on the telly. It was a worrying thing to witness. Despite this, he stayed on for the second show (both shows were actually very good), before being taken away for more stitches to his head than he'd probably like…

My No.1: ‘Re: Evolution’ – The Shamen

Other stuff I’m into: The Bonzo Dog Band, Wire, Morrissey/The Smiths, The Yardbirds, St Etienne, Nine Inch Nails, Adam & the Ants, The Damned, Radiophonic Workshop, Joy Division and U2.

I'm home tonight, so Lili’s staying over. I’m sure she hates me because I’m never about these days. But that’s the life of an actor. In a few months I’ll be under her feet, desperate for a bloody job…’
