Personal Quote:

I was upset for Rolf Harris, who I know reasonably well, and I'm a great admirer of him; he's a very interesting, talented person. We just let these things go and it's hard to conceive how ghastly it must be. OK, you could say it's ghastly for whoever was involved - or not. But it's pretty ghastly for him, considering the age he is. See more »

Studied English at Pembroke College, at Cambridge University. See more »
