Scott: Who was your actor idols growing up?
Richard: I wasn’t big on actors as a kid… Apart from Michael Jackson, I was a massive Gene Kelly & Fred Astaire fan… Still am.

Scott: When did you know acting was your passion and wanted it to be career of yours?
Richard: I trained as a dancer & started out in the musicals (I played ‘Flat Top’ then ‘Electra’ in Starlight Express)… I kind of just fell into acting, loved it, never looked back.

Scott: You been in some amazing programmes like “Bad Girls” “Where the heart is” and “waterloo road” how was the auditioning process?
Richard: The audition process is always tough & that will never change. You have to develop thick skin very quickly in order to manage inevitable rejection… The upside is, it makes success taste even sweeter when it comes around & you learn to appreciate every second.
