Are you more of a hunter or a gatherer?

I am more of a liability but I would have to say that I am a gatherer. I currently have 37 clearly defined illnesses and a few more working their way through my pipeline as we speak.

You’re a new addition to the Packie’s Wake cast so where have you been hiding?

Dooby Doo Dooby do- they thought that were hiding on me but I was down the back of sofa.

We finish the interview and you step outside the office and find a lottery ticket that ends up winning £10 million. What would you do?

Well I have 9 wains and a rabbit so I would make sure that they were OK and looked after until I come back from the around the world trip. You have to make sure the wains are alright don’t you?

What’s your favourite mince?

Hand on hip let’s walk

If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why?

I would have to be a cockroach, one of the world’s great survivors; just like me. Is the cockroach even a namimal??

Nits.

What did you like best in school?

The sick bay. I got my first dose of the scuts in school; the best years of my life.

What’s the last thing you watched on TV and why did you choose to watch it?

University Challenge because I couldn’t find the remote; wile smart the muns.

Tell me something about your last job, other than money, that would have inspired you to keep working there.

The Quay. It was great I went every Friday and somebody handed me a envelope full of money addressed to someone called John Joe Doherty. I never met John Joe and if he reads this it wasn’t me.

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently?

Watching 14 other actors beating their pan in rehearsing for a play called Packie’s Wake starting up in the Play place next week. I don’t have to rehearse anything I am the real scooby doo!!

What do you want to be when you grow up?

Taller.

If you don’t become an actor, what’s your backup plan?

Full time invalidity due to chronic failure.

What inspires you?

A pile load of money, a plate of hawks and the love of a good barman.

What can you teach me in the next five minutes which is something I don’t know.

The art of silence.

What are you known for?

I have learned two things in life; one is don’t tell everyone anything and the other is don’t tell anyone nothing.

What do you work toward in your free time?

Breeding and see how many baps I can eat in an hour.

How would you rate your memory?

Breeding and see how many baps I can eat in an hour.

Can you name three consecutive days without using the words Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday?

Yisterday, the marra and last Tuesday.

You’ve been given an elephant. You can’t give it away or sell it. What would you do with the elephant?

I would attach a meter to it and do taxi runs to Shantalla.

A penguin walks through that door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?

He would say ‘Where’s the play Packie’s Wake on?’ and he is only here for a city break....
