I love the acting community at Cambridge.
It's really quite committed and serious, since the days of Derek Jacobi and Ian McKellen right through to Emma Thompson and Hugh Laurie.
In Halloween, I viewed the characters as simply normal teenagers.
Laurie, Jamie Lee's character, was shy and somewhat repressed. And Michael Myers, the killer, is definitely repressed. They have certain similarities.
Laurie, you're an angel! How shall I ever thank you? Fly at me again.
I rather liked it, said Laurie, looking mischievous, a thing he had not done for a fortnight.
One thing is certain. The old Piper Laurie is no more.
There wasn't much work around at the time, I think I found a bit in Germany or something, but we played together and somehow the bassist Laurie Baker got involved as well - I can't remember exactly how.
