Marcus talking about some of his earliest screen appearances...
The White Guard  was based on a Mickhail Bulgakhov novel about Red Army conscripts, filmed two months out of drama school.
Who Dares Wins was a comedy series for Channel 4 - I have no idea which episode I filmed but I do remember it was supposed to involve an orgasmic love making session.
The Last days of Pompeii  was an American mini series as well as the BBC. My agent told me they were going to pay me to be seduced by Lesley Anne Down but I was required to shave my head - I left immediately.
Diana  a BBC serialisation, where if I remember, I was asked to stumble around the set playing a drunken suitor - I may have been gay in that one. It was shot by Charles Sturridge I think of Brideshead fame.
Mr Palfrey of Westminster [1984/5] was a spy series with Alec McGowan in which I played a French Canadian Army Officer - Lt Charles Dufour.
Perfect Scoundrels. I played James Hedges, unwelcome suitor to Peter Bowles daughter - she liked me - he didn't. Morgan sportscars are too small for me, it was difficult to leap out slickly as they wanted - not enough leg room.
Lone Soldier was adapted from a stage play about a returning Vietnam veteran. I enjoyed that film, it gave me the opportunity to play against type - simple, slow witted, insecure but compassionate smaller brother - I was a natural!
