Director Nicholas Briggs and Jamie Anderson (Producer) are probably sick of the amount of times I thanked them for giving me this opportunity – especially after my pestering of wanting to do one over the years prior. Nick did turn to me during a break saying “See, I didn’t lie to you!” which gave me a smile.
I play three speaking roles in the second story of the boxset, Doctor Who and the Star Beast dramatised by Alan Barnes. It follows two kids, Sharon and Fudge (played by Rhianne Starbuck and Ben Hunter respectfully), as they find the adorable alien creature, Beep the Meep, which is being hunted by the sinister-looking alien WrarthWarriors. I star as Wrarth Sergeant Zreeg, subordinate to Inspector Zogroth (David Schaal); as well as a UNIT Lieutenant and a Local Councillor.
The story is unlike any other I’ve read, listened to or seen before. It’s tremendously fun, exciting, thrilling and a true delight from start to finish. I am immensely proud to be apart of it, and it remains one of the highlights of my career.
