Bob Hoskins, 68, was born in Bury St Edmunds and raised in London. Having left school at 15, he worked as a porter, lorry driver and window cleaner. In 1968, he accompanied a friend to a play audition and ended up with the lead. Ten years later, he starred in his first TV drama, Dennis Potter’s Pennies From Heaven, and in 1980 he made his major film debut with The Long Good Friday. He went on to star in The Cotton Club in 1984 and Mona Lisa in 1986, a performance that earned him an Oscar nomination. [Read the interview here]
