Personal Quote:

It's really not in my nature to relax. If I'm at home then I make up things to do because I can't bear the thought of wasting time by sitting still. I've got to be on the move. I was just born restless, I guess.


1 July 2014: The cast (including Jan Anderson) and crew of "The good drug dealer" directed by Peter Watkins-Hughes received the Working in Partnership accolade (Award) from the Gwent Police Awards, at the Christchurch Centre in Newport, Wales.
