Les Dawson

  1. Richard Wilson, One Foot in the Grave, TV, 1990-2001.       But he’s over 60 and I’m only 53… That was Wilson’s reasoning when he turned down the role of his life, grumpy pensioner Victor Meldrew, in the BBC ageist sitcom. He changed his mind… probably when hearing the role was being offered to Dawson, a stand-up comic, He was 59 and no actor.
