ON CHARACTER TREVOR : ‘I have some sympathy for him. Trevor wasn’t happy trying to look after the home while his wife went out to work, he’s the sort who likes to be involved. When he moves into Kate’s territory, we begin to see there is tension between them.’
ON MUSICAL ZORRO : ‘That was the most exciting thing I have ever done and I’m sure it would have moved to the West End and been a huge success had Ken Hill not died just as he finished writing it, anyway I was lucky enough to get the best reviews I’ve ever had, which stuck in the mind of the casting director at CASUALTY, so Zorro is linked to Trevor, this former policeman.’
