Personal Quote:

And with four children and a large house to keep, I find that I can't spend quite as much as I would like to on my wine. I would love to start buying en primeur [the annual opening offer for the best châteaux] but usually get by spending between £5 and £10 a bottle, mainly at Majestic and Oddbins. See more »

Trivia:

As of 2016, has appeared in three films that were nominated for the Best Picture Oscar: A Room with a View (1985), Howards End (1992) and Gosford Park (2001). See more »
