Peter Medak is truly charismatic and very kind. Living like I do between England and Los Angeles he has made his mark in Films as a Director, among his work he made Ruling Class, Romeo's Bleeding and The Krays. When I met him he was eating Hungarian Sausage with chopped up onion, rather different from what he says here that he likes to eat Vegetarian, Thai and Indian. Everybody asks what my relationship is with him, and it is like this, I like to wrestle with him, we could be champions.
