Richard Wilson was born in Dunlop Street Greenock. Lady Alice Primary and Greenock High School turned out a medical lab technician.
He was 27 and in London when the decision was made to act. RADA prepared him for a career on stage and screen. There is so much more to him than One Foot in the Grave. He is nowhere near as grumpy as Victor Meldrew.
Within the world of drama he is highly regarded both as a director and mentor.
His was the public face and voice behind the fundraising appeal to raise the funds to build the new Greenock Arts Guild.
