The things they say

“I actually had the chance to meet him in the mid-’90s. The meeting wasn’t great, I have to say. He was very much out of order. He didn’t suffer fools, put it that way, and he’d had a few to drink. But I was very glad, when I got to play the role, that I’d seen that side of him.” LORD OF THE RINGS star ANDY SERKIS on his less than friendly meeting with punk icon IAN DURY, who he plays in biopic Sex & Drugs & Rock ‘n’ Roll.
