Personal Quote:

[in 2001] There was quite a free rein until about 10 years ago; producers and writers were allowed to take chances and didn't have to stick to the staple diet of cops and hospitals - or take a star out of a soap opera, give them a contract for several million, and slog away until you find something for them.

Trivia:

The February 2016 BAFTA ceremony neglected to mention Banks Stewart among the people from film and television who had died over the previous year. See more »
