Blue Jeans

In my first term at drama school, I took part in a photo story series for the magazine, Blue Jeans.  I had previously worked for the publisher, D.C. Thomson, in between high school and drama school, so I had actually appeared in many photo stories and even made an appearance in the Jackie annual, but this one was a whole series and they came specially through to Glasgow to shoot it. I managed to get some of my classmates and the dinner lady from the RSAMD canteen to be in it too.

Please appreciate how at peace with my embarrassing teenage self I am to allow this to be reproduced here!!


I attended the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama from 1982-85.  I graduated with a B.A. (Dramatic Studies) and the Gordon Bottomley award for Direction and a prize for the speaking of Scots Verse.

The school has since been renamed The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
