The 2008 "Radio Times" Cover Party

Last year Richard attended the Radio Times cover party since he and Keith Allen (Gisborne and the Sheriff) were featured on one of the covers.  Here he is posing with his magazine cover and actress
Patsy Kensit, who was at the party, being featured on a cover of her own.  (Patsy stars in "Holby City" and is currently married to Jeremy Healy.)  Many other British
actors/actresses were in attendance that evening and you can see a photo gallery of them with their magazine covers HERE
I especially liked good ol' Keith Allen's photo.

Aww look at him with his Lucas North hair.
Off topic that dress Patsy is wearing is lovely.
Keith Allen cracks me up every time. I bet there plenty of outtakes between him and Richard as the Sheriff and Gisbourne. They were quite the double act.

Wasn't she a singer in the 80s? Patsy Kensit, I mean. I remember I played her records when I worked in a local radio station ages ago. Didn't know she had become an actress. Nice picture - because of Richard's smile, especially.

Yes she was in a group called Eighth Wonder and their biggest hit was I Don't Care which she did with the Pet Shop Boys.

Yeah! I remember, I was just surprised she turned to be an actress - not unusual for pop stars, I know. But she was popular here in Italy as "Patsy Kensit and the Eighth Wonder", while she is completely unknown as an actress. Thanks WitchyWoman!

I read Patsy bio. Wow. If even part of it is true, someone needs to do a movie of her life.

True, Bzirk... dad in the mob, singer turned actress, married 4 times to almost all musicians (including Liam from "Oasis") etc. Her life sounds very interesting!

She was an actress first. I remember an advert on tv for Birds Eye Peas. The slogan was "When the pod goes pop" and she stuck her finger in her cheek and pulled it out to make the popping sound (yes I am a child of the 70's). Also if I'm correct she was in The Great Gatsby as a young child.

Back to Richard. He really does look good in black....goes all dreamy.

I can remember Patsy Kensit as a very young kid on the Bird's Eye pea advert. Not to mention playing a playing a boarding school pupil in 'Armchair Thriller's' version of the book, 'As Quiet as a Nun.' Good creepy fun, though it scared me to death aged 9 or 10 as I was at the time.

But I remember buying that Radio Times for something entirely (weird as I don't buy it that often)different. Then caught that picture and cue me turning a complete pile of mush...

That picture of Keith Allan is classic. RA's eyebrows look fabulous. The things you notice huh.
