Stephen Davis

Where are you from?

My mummy's tummy.
Or the gooseberry bush. Depends whose version you believe.

Why did you volunteer to help out on catering? Do you have much catering experience?

The words gullible and bored spring to mind. (I'm just a helpful kind of guy). At university there was an on-going challenge to cook more food than I could eat in one sitting. I only lost once. (I'd already eaten)

How did you get involved in Fluffy?

Am privileged to make the director's working life a misery.

Is this your first film, or have you been involved in other films?

Alien voices in Foiled.
Starring role of guy-at-door-with-bag-of-tea-bags in 'True'.
Also guy-sitting-at-top-of-lock-chamber warning about site hazards and steep drops in the Waterway Recovery Group safety video. (see below)

Are you a Buffy fan?

Oh Yes.

What have you gained from your involvement in Fluffy?

It's not so much what I gained...

Do you have any claims to fame? (E.g. meeting famous people, appearances on TV / stage etc.)

My best mate's sister's best friend's ex-boyfriend's ex-girlfriend is (or was) Louise from Eternal. Interestingly enough I recently met a young lady whose friend's ex-boyfriend was Jamie Redknap. We hence concluded that she was my best mate's sister's best friend's ex-boyfriend's ex-girlfriend's boyfriend's ex-girlfriend's friend.

Then the conversation moved on.

Also, I have a flower named after me (click here to see it).

Any hobbies / obsessions? (Things you enjoy doing)

Go digging derelict canals with the Waterways Recovery Group. It's fun. Get to drive JCBs and dumper trucks. Oh Yes.

Also play a bit of music every now and then. Normally when connected to my double bass.

Any amusing acting / catering cockups (faux pas) - things going wrong on stage etc.?

Only ones which were funny at the time. Like trying to mix a victoria sponge at a mate's house and breaking the handle off the wooden spoon. The resulting cake was half an inch thick and more useful as a frisbee. Or House brick. To this day we are not sure which ingredient we left out. Also not sure what story was spun when my mate's parents discovered the missingness of the spoon 6 months later...

Any bizarre talents?

I can levitate Maltezers using only the repellant power of my lips and the beauty of the Bernoulli Effect.

Any achievements you'd like to mention?

20m swimming certificate. I walked half way on the bottom of the swimming pool. It was at the shallow end.

Any annoying habits? Are there any things that you say a lot?

Basically? nah... don't think so.

Favourite films?

Star Wars. (I'm so original) Withnail and I. Anything involving the 80s, Arnie, Bruce Willis, Stallone, Van Damme, car chases, explosions (preferably involving famous monuments and people diving away from them in slow motion. The use of Coke vending machines as protection from the blast is optional) and inappropriatly amusing sound effects when people are hit over the head with frying pans.

Favourite director(s) + actor(s) + actress(es)?

Sean Connery. Harrison Ford. And Jamie Oliver.

If you could meet one person dead or alive, who would it be?

Am I dead or are they dead? Think I'd rather meet them alive if possible.

What's your favourite fluffy thing?

Very personal. (sorry)
