Here’s an interesting* fact for you: Guy Pearce, famous Australian actor, is not actually Australian. His mum’s from County Durham and his dad’s a Kiwi. And he was born in Ely in Cambridgeshire, not far from where I grew up. Ely is so, so, so weird. Everyone there looks a bit inbred, and the Fens are even weirder. It’s some real Deliverance shit. Good job he left, eh? And it’s good for us too, because otherwise he might not have starred in Neighbours (early WOULD), and might not have starred in The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, and then might not have gone on to feature in some of the best films of the last two decades. He’s a chameleon, and a sterling character actor. As well as this, he’s all slender and whippet-sleek, with nice white teeth. Bonza.
