Personal Quote:

I used to call him "New Money" because he had a massive Bentley and a different model sat in the car each day, and he used to call me "Free Shit" because I always used to get loads of free stuff from companies. It's a shame what happened - I think he could have gone on to be quite something as an actor." See more »

Trivia:

Roth, Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Daniel Day-Lewis, Bruce Payne, and Paul McGann were all part of a group of actors in the mid 1980's dubbed ''The Brit pack'' by the media, a reference to the American ''Brat Pack''. See more »
