BARNES DOUBLE FOR JOHN.
John recently managed to avoid too many problems at Waterloo Station for a double hit in Barnes, the beautiful town on the banks of The Thames. He managed to interview two of his favourite actors, JULIAN WADHAM and CAROL ROYLE, in the same afternoon. He, temporarily, turned Julian's home into a mobile recording studio to undertake the interviews. Carol kindly drove down from Twickenham to avoid John having too many travel problems. Julian is in the exciting new movie Victoria and Abdul, due out in September, and Carol is about to start in the first ever British tour of the hit West End musical Beautiful. She plays Carole King's Mother, Genie Klein. Both fascinating interviews can soon be heard on a worldwide podcast.
