by Terence Dackombe If somebody won a raffle and the prize was to take a penalty kick at half time during a match at Old Trafford, it would be deemed a touch excessive if that raffle winner then went on to describe themselves as a professional footballer for Manchester United.
The Internet Movie Database (IMDB) is incredibly kind in describing me as a writer and an actor. I’m comfortable with the former description and in some ways I’m quite proud of at least part of the work I’ve written over a period of (Lawks!) thirty three years. Yet describing me as an actor, even though I’ve popped up in a few films and TV titles here and there, is rather too much like our Old Trafford raffle winner for comfort.
