I had a very special afternoon .I met up with Dominic Gray ,his husband Reuben and we sat outside in the sunshine in The White Cross ,looking out over The Thames and Richmond Bridge. I’ve mentioned Dominic before , Jacob,Rosie ,Florence,John,Grandma,Jane, plus anyone who ever saw a Waterman’s Panto, loved him ( oh no I didn’t …) as did I – and still do -he is a very kind ,communicative ,funny, caring man who has gone through a very tough time . Directly from his last panto, Aladdin, he was admitted to Barts ,where he had major surgery to remove his cancerous sinuses. I won’t go into detail ,but he has lost a lot of his hearing,his sense of smell ,his facial bones and his weight.he can no longer act , but he does direct and we share the same distraction therapy – musical theatre .So when we meet in a couple of weeks ,we choose something to see over the winter .
But to me , he will always be the man that could wear THAT Pamela Anderson Baywatch , red swimsuit , and look good in it !
