The Early Years
When critics discuss the movies James Fox starred in during the ’60s and early ’70s, his co-stars often seem to overshadow him.

Set in the seedy, tawdry backstreet world of strip clubs, tacky photo-shoots, and faded glamour which characterised parts of late 1950s London, Cover Girl Killer would have made (and indeed probably did make) an ideal bottom-of-the-bill companion to such contemporary productions as Peeping Tom. Written and directed by Terry Bishop, one of the unsung kings of the British b-movie, it stars a pre-Steptoe Harry H. Corbett,

For someone who never had the intention of ever being an actor, Tamer Hassan has certainly achieved a great deal of success. He has worked with the likes of Christian Bale, Bob Hoskins, Orlando Bloom, and Morgan Freeman. His career path all started from a small part in Eastenders in 2001. Tamer was fortunate enough to pass by the failed auditions, and wondering where his next meal was coming from.
