Wouldn't it be great surprise IF...

...out of the blue, someone who was in AWP series 1 or 2 suddenly becomes a member of this forum - and starts sharing his or her memories of what it was like. Wouldn't that be amazing? I suppose I'm dreaming here, but you never know.

How do you know they are not?

I know someone wrote a review of Jimmy's autobiography on a blog or similar, and Jimmy actually commented on his review, which must have been pretty amazing.

I would say Jimmy is the most internet savvy of the surviving cast.
Tim Spall has sent 1 Email in his life according to his wife, and Kevin Whately doesn't use the internet much, so the media makes out. Now unless Christopher Fairbank and Tim Healy are internet addicts, then I am still going for Jimmy being web wise so to speak...

I would go with Jimmy also.
He wrote in his book how his love affair with Apple Macs started in the late 80s.

I guess with his work on TV, writing, directing, producing, computers were part of his life....

I have wondered before if any of the main characters have read the forum. But I would also love to hear from actors who played minor parts or even extras in Germany. I didn't think Jimmy Nail would be that interested in replying to people's blogs, reviews or comments. I've always thought he was such a very private person who wishes to keep away from any kind of attention. Must of felt great for that guy who got a reply from him. :)

Another issue is that people on the internet have fooled people into thinking they are someone else.The best way to attract attention to the blog maybe write to his agency.If they bother to pass your details on.

The remaing actors visited the original locations for some kind of get together for the 30th anniversary, sharing their memories and expiriences.
