Warwick Davis Actor

‘My dad never pandered to me.

I’m the same with my kids [the condition was passed on to his two children]. I often see them climbing up shelves to get things.’

Ricky Gervais Comedian and actor

‘My dad was a labourer and he used to get up at 5.30 every morning. He worked for 50 years of his life, in all weathers, for – by showbiz standards – petty cash. I remind myself of that when I’m feeling a little bit hard done-by.’
