The Mossley Hill-born ‘Sex and the City’ star returned to the city in 2010 to play Shakespeare’s Cleopatra at the Liverpool Playhouse.
Kim’s visit was, of course, not without a chat to Liverpool’s most widely read magazine and she reflected on what the city means to her as well as its “wonderful” approach to fashion.
“Yeah ok sound!” was apparently how Liverpool’s own Stephen Graham responded when he was asked by Martin Scorsese to play Al Capone.
Now no stranger to big screen hits and iconic TV series, Stephen shared stories of working with the legendary director to playing Combo in Shane Meadows’ ‘This Is England’ during our 2013 interview.
The former De La Salle School pupil and Everyman Youth Theatre alumni told us how theatre in Liverpool helped shape him as an actor during an interview in 2011.
David, who has starred in acclaimed shows including ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘The Deal’, was appearing in ‘Macbeth’ – the final major production at the Everyman before it closed for two years to be rebuilt.
‘Withnail & I’ actor Paul McGann said he was “dead against” a sequel to the cult classic being made when we caught up with him in 2017.
The Kensington-born actor, who also had a stint in the ‘Doctor Who’ role, was back in his hometown to play German army major Commander Von Pfunz on stage in ‘Gabriel’.
