June — These were my first portraits, which Corin Redgrave, my fellow-undergraduate actor at Cambridge, persuaded me I should need as a professional actor. He took me to his fathers photographer in Knightsbridge, London. I was powdered and brushed and posed in front of an old-fashioned plate camera - and these two stilted shots were the result. I ordered 50 of each and used them to send to prospective employers and to the occasional fan.
