Birmingham Stage Company

Richard Harris

17 July 2007

I bumped into the Rachel Fielding last night. We were both at drama school together.

Rachel and her husband Paul Rattigan were cast in HENRY IV with Richard Harris and on the first day of rehearsals Richard was there to welcome everyone into the company.

"Hello, who are you?" he asked as the beautiful Rachel entered.
"I'm Rachel and I'm playing xxxx".
"Welcome to the company" said a beaming Richard.
Then Paul entered. "Welcome and who are you" asks Richard.
"I'm Paul and I'm playing xxxx and I'm married to Rachel".
"Welcome aboard" said Richard, still shaking Paul's hand as he turned to his producer and shouted "Who the fuck hired this guy?"
