I thought I knew Grant Stott fairly well. I was wrong.
We’ve worked together for the same company in the past and knew each other through that, mutual pals and a couple of things we’ve put together for fun, like a podcast last year
Obviously, everything I knew about Grant remains true, but what we found in this episode of The 1% Club Podcast was a lot more.
In Episode 3, as Neil makes final preparations to represent Great Britain once more, going for cycling Gold at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo, here on the podcast (recorded earlier in the Summer), and after one of the world’s foremost multi instrumentalists, we move onto someone who spends a large chunk of his life also playing music, but not his own, (and usually it’s on vinyl).
Grant Stott is a radio and television presenter, Panto turn and actor, which was actually his big dream all along.
He talks about the importance of knock-backs and refusing to accept them, working for the police before chasing his dream, and how, despite any real kind of planning, one job led to the next until finally he reached the acting world he’d wanted to be a part of all along.
Grant tells us about the people who’ve been the greatest influences upon him throughout his career, including his long time pal, Andy Gray, before his passing earlier this year.
And we talk about how, in the case of the Edinburgh Panto….the show must go on.
