Odds and ends. The bits from press clippings, websites, etc., that didn't fit anywhere else.
Excerpt: "TONY HEAD - yes, that one from the Gold Blend adverts - is certainly making it big in the States with his role in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He is often spotted chatting to Cameron Diaz and Al Pacino - they all hang out at the same LA hotel for breakfast at weekends." (complete text)
Excerpt: "Last July, [Craig Ferguson, Nigel Wick on The Drew Carey Show,] tied the knot with American love Sascha, his girlfriend of three years. Their wedding was a blend of elements that reflected the couple's backgrounds. A female rabbi officiated at the Jewish ceremony, though the bride walked down the aisle to the sound of bagpipes. And while Sascha wore a designer gown, the groom wore a kilt and a skullcap. The 150 guests, including Craig's co-star Drew Carey, and Buffy The Vampire Slayer's Anthony Head, dined on a wedding cheesecake in the shape of a fish stick (Craig's favourite food), sprinkled with shaved coconut and raspberry sauce served as "ketchup". "I liked the idea of the ceremony being fun," says Craig." (complete text)
Excerpt: "Miramax Films' Down in the Delta, CBS' The Promised Land, NBC's ER and ABC's Sports Night were among the winners Tuesday of the Prism Awards, which champion accurate depictions of drug use and addiction in movies and on television. [...] Actors Gerald McRaney, Michele Lee, Roseanna Arquette, Wendy Phillips, Camryn Manheim, Mariette Hartley and Anthony Stewart Head also attended."
"Sascha Corwin had been dating Craig Ferguson, one of the stars of The Drew Carey Show, for almost three years when he took her for sushi at Santa Monica's Lighthouse Buffet. The meal wasn't the only thing that seemed fishy. 'It's not every day that your boyfriend asks you if you want to go down to the beach at sunset, looking like he's going to throw up as he's saying it,' says Sascha, 29. Craig, 36, proposed, losing neither his cool, his girl, nor his lunch (though he had a much better time at his wedding). 'I like the idea that the ceremony can be fun,' he says. 'It's meant to be.'
"where and when: July 18, 1998, at the Regal Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.
"the ceremony: A blend of elements that reflected the couple's backgrounds. Rabbi Wendy Spears officiated at the Jewish ceremony, though the bride walked down the aisle to the sound of bagpipes.
"what they wore: The bride wore Vera Wang; the groom wore a kilt and a yarmulke.
"the guests: 150, including Craig's co-stars Drew Carey, Kathy Kinney and Ryan Stiles, and Buffy's Anthony Head.
"the reception: Craig's uncles led all who were willing in an old Scottish dance. Said Sascha, summing up the evening's quirky vibe: 'Where else can you learn a Scottish country dance at a Jewish wedding?'
"the groom's cake: A cheesecake in the shape of a fish stick (Craig's favorite food), sprinkled with shaved coconut; raspberry coulis served as 'ketchup.'"
Audience member at May 20, 1998 party for the 25th anniversary of Rocky Horror Show, Richmond Theatre.
Excerpt: "Also in the audience were two actors that had played Frank 'N' Furter in previous productions of the stage show: Anthony Head (guest at Transylvania 1992 and currently to be seen in the television series of Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Peter Blake."
Except: "Actor Nigel Planer and his beautiful model wife Anna have separated. The star, who shot to fame as the drippy hippy in TV's The Young Ones, is said by a close friend to be heartbroken. [...] The couple married at a glamorous £50,000 ceremony attended by stars including Ben Elton, Lenny Henry, Dawn French, Adrian Edmonson and Jennifer Saunders. Best man was Tony Head - star of the Gold Blend TV coffee commercials - who said last night that he was saddened by the split. 'They're both lovely people, but it's the rigours of modern living,' he added."
Excerpt: "On Friday, the Mirror ran a full-page colour photo of a man dressed as a woman. He wore: a pink shiny camisole, a black lacy slip, black fishnet tights, shiny high-heeled boots. Who was he, for his eccentricities to merit such coverage? A disgraced MP? A vicar? No - nothing so exciting. He was the man who appears in the Gold Blend coffee ads, a rising star in the tabloid world. A closer look underneath the headline 'Gold Blend Tony's In The Pink For A Taste Of Camp' revealed even more of a non-story. Tony wasn't even perverted. He was dressed like this for a play. 'After each performance,' the writer told us, 'he will go home to his girlfriend, Sarah Fisher, 26, and their two-year-old daughter, Emily Rose, in suburban Tooting Bec.' What a relief."
