Watch an interview with Christopher Plummer. . .

Just back from a road trip to Montreal and Ottawa where I've been having such fun talking up Christopher Plummer's marvellous autobiography In Spite of Myself, to just about every single person I meet. We've just posted a three-part interview with him which you can watch here. In it Plummer talks about why he wanted to write the book as a novel rather than as an autobiography and he muses on the glory days of Montreal, his relationship with his daughter Amanda, his early years at Stratford and why he left Canada. Have I mentioned what a fabulous writer I think he is?
