BEING DAVID ARCHER


BEING DAVID ARCHER

TIMOTHY BENTINCK    Book Number: 89786    Product format: Paperback

A self-deprecating dual biography of character and actor, juxtaposing the simple life of farmer David Archer with the rollercoaster ups and downs of being an actor. When Tim Bentinck landed the part of David Archer in BBC Radio 4's The Archers back in 1982, he had no idea that 35 years later the son of Britain's most famous farming family would have grown up to be a father of three, facing similar problems to those his grandparents and parents had faced before him. From playing David Archer to voicing Mind the Gap on the Piccadilly Line, Bentinck's acting career has taken in hundreds of radio, film, stage and TV parts including voice overs, narrations, audiobooks and film dubbing and the ultimate accolade, a Time Lord in Doctor Who. He has also found other unusual ways of earning a living including HGV trucking, driving tourists around America, computer coding and website design, inventing, and working as a farm labourer and electrician. 'Conquering fear is one thing but living with abject, self-imposed terror is quite another.' Some name dropping (Michael Caine) and lots of background titbits and plenty of high drama. 319pp, paperback, 16 pages of colour and b/w photos.
