What do you do to relax?If not working, I like to go for a walk with my wife Kristina, then head home and prepare a little lunch, before watching a movie on TV with our feet up.
What’s your favourite film?Lawrence of Arabia.
What career path would you have taken had you not been an actor?Probably a doctor. I’m such a hypochondriac that it would be wonderful to cure myself and diagnose everything that might be wrong.
Who inspired you?My mother and father.
If you could have one wish – what would it be?I wish my mother and father were still here with me.
What’s your Star sign and are you a good representation of its meaning?I’m Libra. If it means I’m easy-going, charming, modest, kind, good-natured, modest, a loving husband, good-looking, modest, a loving father and modest, then yes.
What’s your favourite possession?Oh, probably my computer. I’m a silver surfer!
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be and why? Where I am now in Switzerland with my wife Kristina – we love it here and love being with one another, so what's better?
What’s the best piece of advice you have ever been given?You’re not very good, so smile a lot when you come on – from the director of a play I was doing in rep, in my early years as a struggling actor. Nowadays I just struggle to act.
Do you have any unresolved ambitions?Yes. To be the oldest living person in the world.
