Meet With Comedy Writer & Actor Tom Rosenthal
Having photographed Christopher Biggins, I made a rather difficult tube trip to Arsenal to meet up with comedy actor and writer Tom Rosenthal. Covent Garden tube station was closed to passengers entering so I had to walk to Leicester Square, and then there was a signal problem on the Piccadilly Line . So a journey that should have taken me about 20 minutes took twice as long, but I got there just about on time to meet up with Tom. We went to the same school although I have a few years head start on him!
We are both fans of Arsenal so it made sense to me at the stadium to do the photo. We just missed out on the setting sun which was a shame, but we still managed to get some good photos, and the one in the book will feature Tom standing by a statue of an Arsenal legend...
No messing from Tom with the bowel cancer tie, and he was happy to wear it like a tie should be worn. Keep an eye out for his new comedy Flat TV which be airing on BBC3 later in the year,.
It was also interesting that Tom was also supporting a Sepsis charity. This medical condition can be fatal, and sadly my dad died from it after having contacted pneumonia in 2009. It's another illness that needs talking about and have awareness raised about it.
