Oh, that means that Timothy Spall was only in his mid 20s when they did AWP!! :o
But he looks like he's in his mid 40s to me... :roll:

And there you have it... It's sometimes the case that people look much older - or younger - than what they really are!

We (meaning my family) all look younger than we really are. Nobody wants to believe me that I am in my mid 40s already. Actually, I can't really believe it myself. But it's the truth.
One day in the not too distant future someone will probably try to send me back to "Kindergarten" or so... :roll:

As far as I am able to tell, I must say that Kevin Whately has aged really good. 8-)
At least he doesn't look older than his real age.

Have a nice day,

Another thing I noticed: Christopher Fairbank is about the same age as most of the others. But when you look at his face he looks very much older. I wonder if that is the result of all the smoking in the series.

Talking about smoking, I think it is very amazing that Gary Holton looked quite young. With all the "ciggies" he used to smoke I would have expected him to look much older! Well, maybe he had extraordinarily good genes or so... And I have read that he took a lot of drugs as well! That's a shame, really! Of course, that was his biggest mistake and it finally killed the poor chap! :cry:

But it seems to me that he really wanted it that way... He wanted to be and live like a rock star. And that's what he did. And as a consequence he also died like a rock star (drugs!!).

What a shame and what a waste! :cry:

My daughter who was 1 just gone shares her birthday with the man himself. I couldn't have planned it better if I'd tried.
