Lets talk about reading. A topic well worth paying attention to. It may sound silly but I get the feeling that nowadays most people who commute to work via public transport waste their time either listening to music on their mobile phones, reading newspapers, which has nothing good to say, or just stare plainly into space.

I just finished filming in Macau for a few days with an actor you probably have heard of who goes by the name of Rowan Atkinson.

Now here’s a funny idea that is worth sharing. For all the actors out there who tend to think inside the box, I’d like to give you an example of an actor, who you may recognise (but I won’t give you his name just yet), who at a young age made the audacious decision of writing a letter to a … Read More
