Jack P. Shepherd: “What’s on your mantelpiece?”

The Steeple Times asks actor Jack Shepherd (“Coronation Street’s” David Platt): “What’s on your mantelpiece?”

 

The Steeple Times shares “wit and wisdom”. What’s your guiding force?

Patience and optimism.

 

“Don’t get even, get medieval” is, in our humble opinion, a great motto. What’s yours?

Fail to prepare, prepare to fail.

 

Kerry Katona was considered unacceptable in 2007. Who or what is unacceptable in 2013?

In 2013 it is unacceptable that we don’t have hover boards yet.

 

Tony Blair misses being Prime Minister. What do you miss most in your life?

The sun. Never see it anymore.

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

I haven’t got any wealth but if I did, I would swap it for more wealth. I like wealth.

 

Donald Trump was once a case of: “If you owe the bank a thousand, they close you down; but if you owe the bank a billion, you own the bank”. What’s your view on the banking crisis?

Banking crisis? When?

 

What phrase or word do you most loathe?

“Smile, it might never happen”… It just has.

 

In the UK, some people consider charity to “begin at home”. What’s your view and what causes do you personally support?

I agree with that to a certain extent but I think it is a good idea to look out for the small charities. I am a patron of the PhysCap charity dedicated to improving the quality of life of children suffering from severe physical disabilities.

 

The judge in Law Abiding Citizen states: “I can pretty much do whatever I want” before being blown up whilst answering her mobile phone. What’s your view on the appropriate use of such devices?

That lot at Apple are a clever bunch, aren’t they?

 

If you could fill a carriage on The Orient Express, who would be your fellow passengers?

Jim Carey, Jack Nicholson, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Ricky Gervais, Brad Pitt and a couple of birds.

If you were unfortunate enough to end up on death row, what would be your last meal and where would you eat it?

Soup of any variety to start. I’m not fussed what it is but keep it small as I get full easily. I’ll then have a Sunday roast followed by mint choc ice cream. And a beer. And I would eat it in my cell obviously.

 

What time is it acceptable to consume the first drink of the day?

<<< 😉

 

A Negroni, a martini or a cup of tea?

Don’t know what the first one is. A martini? No, I’m not Bond so it’ll have to be a cup o’ tea.

 

Whose parties do you enjoy the most and why?

Parties? Hmm… That’s hard. I’m not much of a party guy. Probably Ryan Thomas’ (Coronation Street’s Jason Grimshaw).

 

Who is the most positive person you know?

My mum, I guess. She’s not really that positive but is more so than the rest. 🙂

 

What’s your most guilty pleasure?

Watching myself on television.

 

If a tattoo were to sum you up, what would it be of?

A monkey chucking a grenade and shrugging his shoulders.

 

If you were a car, what marque would you be?

A Mini Sport.

 

Cilla Black presented Surprise, Surprise. Tell us the most surprising thing about you.

My little fingers are both bent and I can also do a good impression of Mickey Mouse.

 

What’s currently sitting on your mantelpiece?

Photographs and candles. See above.

  1. I reckon Jack P Shepherd is a first rate w*****. Surely, everyone knows it. He admits it so there is no problem with getting it out there.

  2. Matthew
    I am vexed with you….surely there are more interesting people to interview, rather that some fellow off a television programme no refined person would/should ever admit to watching….
    I rarely watch television….real life in England is so grim and vulgar that there seems little point in torturing one’s self seeing it dramatised on a screen.

    • Prince Charles and his lady wife are said to be fans.
      We interview a huge variety of people and of course some will appeal to you and others won’t.
      Variety is, as they say, the spice of life.

  3. Nothing surprises me as far as the taste of the Royal Family is concerned so it would not in the least surprise me that PC and his good lady like this rot
