Peter Noble. 1950's actor and producer. Fascinating chap.
Release: Jun 15, 2017
BBC are making a one-off biopic celebrating Barbara Windsor as she hits Eighty. 'Babs' is shooting now and will air in 2017.
Although I'm a only small cog in this massive production (five actresses are playing Barbara Windsor!) I'm really chuffed to be part of it. I'm playing a chap called Peter Noble, who was an actor and producer in the 1950's and later.
He's a fascinating person - he seems to have known and met everyone in the industry at the time. At first I couldn't find much on him other than an intriguing obituary; but then I discovered an absolute goldmine on the British Pathe website. Turns out that he presented the 'gossip' section of a weekly 1950's film digest called 'Film Fanfare'. Take a look here - he's such a great character and I'm honoured to be playing him.
