Louise Isaacs - An audience with . . .      22/01/2012

Controversial actor, writer and director Steven Berkoff held an 150-strong audience at Avonbourne spellbound - regaling them with tales from his long theatre and film career. Berkoff is best known to many as the bad guy in movies like Octopussy and Beverly Hills Cop, and can currently be seen on the big screen in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. He made his name however in the 1960s and 70s as the naughty boy of British theatre. His visit to Avonbourne was organised by Head of Drama, and Chair of Arena Theatre, Paul Nelson in conjunction with Clive Conway Celebrity Productions. The 74-year-old described how he learned his craft -  at stage school, as a theatrical dogsbody in the West End and during years of summer seasons in repertory companies. He says he has a very ambivalent attitude to his film work - describing the tedium of shooting endless takes for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo -  and how he eventually turned to co-star Jolie Richardson and asked: “How on earth do you survive this?” But the one-time enfant-terrible of the English theatre says he is both surprised and delighted to find his work being studied as part of the current  A-level curriculum.
