2002-: Third president of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA).
At my age the only problem is with remembering names. When I call everyone "darling", it has damn all to do with passionately adoring them, but I know I'm safe calling them that. Although, of course, I adore them, too.
Frequently filmed movies about former British colonies. Examples include India (Gandhi (1982)), South Africa (Cry Freedom (1987)), Canada (Grey Owl (1999))
