I met Peter 20 years ago on the set of Funny Bones the movie, I played the role of a stag dressed up as a viking and I had to smash some railings up on a Ghost Train at a fun fair..
My part ended upon the cutting room floor I am afraid to say, but I had a fun time..
Hardest 18hrs of my life for £50.. :tongue_smilie:
