An Actor's Life For Me - The Complete Series 1-3
All 19 episodes of the BBC radio comedy about an aspiring actor with dreams of stardom.
Young actor Robert Wilson is desperately seeking work - and he's prepared to do almost anything for his big break. He's convinced that he's only one audition away from fame and fortune: but while he builds castles in the air, his agent Desmond and girlfriend Sue try their best to bring him back down to earth.
In these three series, Robert gets a part as a chauffeur (except he can't drive), gets carried away in a romantic leading role and gets his party politicals in a bit of a pickle. Plus, his role in a seedy sex farce leads to a sticky situation with Sue's parents, his job performing in a prison means he finally has a captive audience and his appearance on children's TV causes his flat to be surrounded by press - but is that an actor's dream, or an actor's nightmare?
Written by Paul Mayhew-Archer, who went on to co-write The Vicar of Dibley and Mrs Brown's Boys, this lively comedy was a huge success on radio and transferred to TV in 1991 for one series. John Gordon Sinclair plays Robert, with Caroline Quentin and Gina McKee as Sue.
