It was difficult to play a male character role, though one of my best performances! I donned a fat suit, a fake beard which I would swallow bits of, my face and teeth were covered in make-up and I dosed my hair in oil for a greasy effect. Dimas mirrored my grandfather with a Scottish brogue! I got the chance to make people howl with laughter by bringing out my sweaty inner man!
