What is it like being the greatest man to ever live?
I wouldnt know because I am not Nelson Mandela
Movie you passed on, that wish you wouldn't have?

Huge, huge fan of yours, Azeem from Robin Hood will always outweigh everything else, even God, for me personally.
I have always wanted to play Bass Reeves, a deputy US marshal in Oklahoma in the 1870s
If you had to recommend one book what would it be?
I would recommend different books to different people. For a young person I would say Moby Dick. For a more romantic person I would recommend Great Expectations. For the very young reader I would recommend Black Beauty

the bad guy. The good guy is pretty boring
