Here’s Nick Frost and Simon Pegg taking part in a Q&A at last week’s fundraiser we attended for charity MediCinema at BAFTA.
A “keen baker”, Nick told the audience he’s probably the only actor to ignore a scheduled call from Steven Spielberg offering him a new role, because he didn’t want the cake he had in the oven to burn.
Fortunately for him – and for audiences – he eventually took the call and secured a Thompson twin role. He’s got his old mate Simon to thank, apparently, who was asked by Steven if he knew anyone who could play the other twin alongside him.
They stayed for the charity auction, Nick kicking things off nicely by paying handsomely for a screening of The Muppets at Disney’s HQ in Hammersmith, and then joined us in BAFTA's cinema to introduce the screening of Tintin in 3D. Fantastic!
