Iain Glen

HE is on first-name terms with Angelina, Mila and Nicole, but Iain Glen is the most reluctant of stars.At least, this used to be his attitude: time has mellowed him. When we met in 1993 as he prepared to play Macbeth in Michael Boyd’s celebrated staging at Glasgow’s Tron Theatre, he told me that, given the choice, he wouldn’t do any publicity at all.

Michelle Gomez

SHE has taken her time about it, but Michelle Gomez is finally learning how to be ambitious. Whatever it is that propelled her to those heady television heights – the insecure footballer's wife Janice McCann in The Book Group; the hilariously bonkers Sue White in Green Wing; the raucous Amanda, upwardly mobile bride-to-be, in Irvine Welsh's Wedding Belles – it wasn't a lust for fame and glory.

Clare Grogan and Karen Dunbar interview

About Sleeping Beauty. A King's Theatre, Glasgow preview.

KAREN Dunbar is remembering her very first entrance in the panto at the King's, Glasgow. It felt like she was covered in bubble wrap, she says. For all her experience doing karaoke and comedy, she had never performed anything quite like it. Her nerves made her dead to the world. That was in 2007, when she played Nanny Begood in Sleeping Beauty, a role she took to – nerves or not – like she was born to it. She matched the late Gerard Kelly laugh for laugh and turned in several songs to boot. She was right to be nervous because of the place the King's panto has in the hearts of Glasgow audiences but, in the end, she needn't have worried.
