Ricky Tomlinson talks Sacha Baron Cohen & Easter Panto…
Jim Royale, Mike Basset, Bobby Grant and now…..the Mirror on the wall! Ricky Tomlinson has done it all and this Easter we get to see him every day and night for 3 weeks at one of the city’s favourite theatre’s and he will be looking back (and probably answering back) at us as we do!
Ricky will take up the part as the Mirror in LHK Productions ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ from March 24th, and as it’s actually Jim Royale himself providing the voice for the mirror anything could happen. The show also stars Celeb Big Brother winner James Hill, and Liverpool radio legend Debi Jones.
We met Ricky at the Epstein to talk pantomime, how important it is for younger generations to experience shows like this and how a Liverpool audience is the best audience to entertain. In his words ‘if you can make it in Liverpool, you can make it anywhere!’.
Ricky also told us about his latest movie starring alongside Sacha Baron Cohen, Rebel Wilson, Isla Fisher and even Johnny Vegas. Grimbsy is open now and by all accounts well worth a trip to the Pictures for.
