LISTEN TO BBC ESSEX THURSDAY MORNING WHEN OUR OWN "LITTLE GUY" MIKE TAKES THE MIC

Brentwood Writers' Circle members enjoyed hearing tales from the silver screen and the Royal Shakespeare stage when Southend boy Mike Edmonds paid us a visit last week.  So many fans made contact after the short feature appeared in the Brentwood Gazette last week (see earlier posting below). 

Mike illustrated his talk with some wonderful photographs and spoke from years of experience, the first film being Ken Loach's famous Black Jack, then in children’s TV show Maid Marian and Her Merry Men, and films - Flash Gordon, The Dark Crystal, Who framed Roger Rabbit, Time Bandits (in the role as Og), Return of the Jedi (as Ewok Logray), as well as the operator for Jabba the Hutt’s tail, Star Wars and of course, Harry Potter, among many other performances.

Tomorrow morning 19 February - from 10.00am on the  Dave Monk Show we can all hear more from this entertaining actor, when he calls into the BBC Essex Studio in Chelmsford. Don't forget to listen!
