John Challis has been confirmed as one of our guests for April 2015 after appearing at our previous events and enjoying meeting the Con goers.
He also spoke about meeting one of his own personal heroes – Gordon Banks in the Birmingham Mail.
John is best known as Boycie in the BBC’s Only Fools and Horses (1981).
He also had roles in The Green Green Grass (2005), and Doctor Snuggles (1979). And for all the classic Doctor Who fans, he also played Scorby in the Doctor Who story “The Seeds of Doom”. When talking about Only Fools & Horses, he once said:
“We just knew that whatever else we did, however good we were in other roles, the most famous thing we’d ever do was Only Fools and Horses. It was just so big. But it was wonderful to be in something that meant so much to people.”
His personal favourite Only Fools and Horses episode is “The Sky’s the Limit” (1990).
Did you know that he worked at an estate agents in Surrey prior to becoming an actor?
Who could forget that infamous trade mark “Boycie Laugh”?!?
You guys will get the chance to buy his fantastic book “Being Boycie” and have it signed at Stoke CON Trent #4.
