About the Author

Few people's careers have spanned as many aspects of the show business world as have Robin Hawdon's. From stage, TV, and film actor (who came close to being James Bond), to playwright performed in over forty countries, to West End stage director, to mainstream Theatre Director, to five star novelist, his activities include both triumphs and major setbacks. In the course of Robin's long career he has either worked with, or encountered, some of the most famous names around, and experienced a lively domestic life spread over four different countries, resulting in a wealth of entertaining tales. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Top USA review of Hawdon's memoir, 'Almost Famous':-

Robin Hawdon, one of England's most successful and prolific playwrights, has written an extraordinary memoir, tracing his life in the theater as both an actor and writer from the 1950s to the present. Full of wisdom and practical tips anyone considering a life in the theater would enjoy, it is also chock-full of charming personal and family anecdotes, often wickedly funny, particularly when relating his experiences with many of the greats of modern English language theater and cinema - the likes of Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Lauren Bacall, Laurence Olivier, Harold Pinter, John Gielgud, Paul Scofield, and many, many more. Mr. Hawdon, a true renaissance man, has combined a life as an actor and writer with successful ventures into theater management and real estate. He and his wife have homes in England, the south of France and Australia and have lived in South Africa and travelled the world. With self-deprecating humor, he weaves all these elements into a fast-paced memoir that is hard to put down.
