Simon Callow made his first professional appearance on stage in 1973 with The Thrie Estates at Assembly Hall Theatre, Edinburgh, and has since accumulated an impressive list of credits in theatre, opera, TV and film to his name. He has been gracing the big screen in a wide variety of roles since his film debut in 1984 as Schikaneder in Amadeus, but, it was as the character Reverend Mr. Beebe in A Room With a View (1985) and as Gareth in Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994) that he became known to wider audiences. In 2009, he starred as Pozzo in a UK tour of Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett with Sir Ian McKellan and Patrick Stewart. As well as his numerous successes as an actor and director, Callow is also a prolific writer, including key texts on acting and two biographies of American film legend Orson Welles. He was made a Commander of the British Empire in 1999 for his services to acting.
Simon Callow will be interviewed by BBC Movie Cafe presenter, Janice Forsyth, and the event introduced by organizer Prof. Alan Marcus. Director's Cut Special Screenings are being run by Cineworld Aberdeen Union Square - visit the website for more details.
