This week’s interview is with Paul Darrow, star of the 1970s cult classic Blake’s 7, now returning to Big Finish audio. Darrow was the infamously sinister yet charming Kerr Avon, who ultimately stole the show, both literally and figuratively, eventually taking over the lead. He also appeared briefly in Doctor Who alongside Colin Baker.
We had a pleasant chat about how Paul became an actor, his roles as the Sheriff of Nottingham, his memories of the late Alan Rickman, and what kept him coming back to his famous Avon role. He is an actor, writer, and producer now, and is also part of the interactive murder mystery Contradiction (which we reviewed here), alongside John Guilor (who I interviewed here).
