Sylvester McCoy

About Plume. A Tron Theatre preview.

WHEN The Hobbit hits the big screen in December, it will be the most eagerly anticipated film of 2012. By that time, Tolkien fans will have waited nine years for an extra helping of Middle Earth mayhem from Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson. With an all-star cast and a reported budget of $150 million (about £94m) each, the two Hobbit movies – this year's An Unexpected Journey and its sequel, There and Back Again – are very big business indeed. Not big enough, however, to stand in the way of the Tron Theatre.

Lorna McDevitt

WE’VE been seeing a lot of you lately, I say to Lorna McDevitt, as politely as I can. "It’s become a joke round here," she laughs. "‘Oh, are you wearing any clothes in this play?’"

Ian McDiarmid interview: To the dark side

IAN McDiarmid is the most reluctant of Hollywood stars. A more flighty actor would have taken offence when, at the red-carpet premiere of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in 1999, none of the photographers knew who he was. But the Carnoustie-born psychology graduate laughed at the oversight. He couldn't blame them given that he was not wearing the prosthetic make-up that had transformed him into the dark lord Emperor Palpatine in 1983's Return Of The Jedi, and, in any case, McDiarmid revelled in his anonymity.

Irene Macdougall

IRENE Macdougall has been taking her work home with her. "Last Tuesday, I had all evening, so I thought, no television, just script, script, script," says the mainstay of the Dundee Rep ensemble. "I did about two hours’ work and then I thought, ‘Actually, it would be really helpful if I’d had a few drinks.’ So I opened a bottle of wine, poured myself three glasses one after the other - and it doesn’t take much for me - and I found it quite useful. You don’t give a damn when you’re tiddly."

Lorraine McIntosh in Beautiful Burnout

Interview with Deacon Blue Star. A National Theatre of Scotland preview.

WHEN Lorraine McIntosh takes to the stage for the premiere of the National Theatre of Scotland's Beautiful Burnout, she knows who her fiercest critic will be. In the first-night audience will be Ricky Ross, her husband and fellow Deacon Blue bandmate, who is a voracious theatregoer - a three-times-a-week man, she says - and no mean director himself. A couple of years ago, he staged a mystery play at their local church and, according to McIntosh, made a tremendous job of it. So when it comes to her high-profile performance with the NTS, she knows he'll tell it like it is - just as she has always been frank with him about his music.

Una McLean

THIS is what it's like when you go for a drink with Una McLean and Lynn Ferguson. As soon as the barman says hello, McLean catches his accent and asks if he's Irish. No, he tells her, he's from eastern Europe. The mistake amuses McLean enough to let loose one of her trademark laughs . . .

Gavin Mitchell interview

On taking over from Gerard Kelly. A King's Theatre, Glasgow preview

Three years ago, I wrote a review of Sleeping Beauty that compared the comedy legs of Gavin Mitchell with those of Gerard Kelly. Mitchell was playing Norval, the witch's son, in the Glasgow King's panto and it looked as though his pins were ready to give way beneath him. Kelly, of course, was the high priest of knock-kneed hilarity and, as Chester the Jester, gave his legs a life of their own. I suggested Mitchell had been paying attention to Kelly's technique.
