  Chat took place on Fanfare, 1 May 2010

Despite an initial problem with the moderated chat room, we had a wonderful time with our special guest.  Before Michael arrived, Celeste recommended that chatters place their locations next to their names.  Although there was chatting both before and after our special guest arrived, this transcript begins with Michael's arrival and ends with his departure.  Some editing (mostly arrivals/departures) has taken place for the sake of clarity.  Enjoy!

 Welcome to the Michael Praed Fanfare Chat Room! Today we are very proud to have with us the man himself.

Hello, Michael. We're delighted you can join us!

Today's chat is moderated by admins to allow Michael time to respond to us. Anything you'd like to say will come to the mods first. Your comment will appear once it is approved. We will try to give everyone a chance to speak.

Katerina (Russia, Siberia)
Good evening, Mr. Praed!

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
Hang on.

Celeste notices moderated chat is not operating properly and starts shuffling people out to fix it.

Helen R (UK)
Like we would miss it!!!

Joan (Ashford, Kent.)
It's lovely to see you here, Michael!

Mercedes (Perú)
Hi there! What happened!

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
Technical difficulties!

Michael Praed
And can I take the chance to say a vast thank you for all your generosity on my birthday?

Michael Praed
Your gifts touched me greatly. And were/are VERY much appreciated. Thank you

Eve (New York City)
oops - looks like we all bounced!

Helen R (UK)
Hi again Michael.

Mercedes (Perú)
Thank YOU!

Joan (Ashford, Kent.)
I hope you had a great birthday, Michael!
 
Gordina (Cologne/Germany)
We were delighted to hear about your amazing sales success in Aberdeen. Well done!
 
Sammy (N Wales)
back again - disappeared there for a bit -

Eve (New York City)
And hello again

Celeste completes restart of moderated chat.

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
Okay. The moderated chat wasn't working so I had to kick everyone out to see if that would fix it. I'm sorry.


Michael Praed
I had a lovely birthday, thank you. I haven't been able to set up an appointment for the racetrack. Largely because I would be in breech of contract since it's regarded as a 'dangerous sport''. But. . . As soon as I can. I will!

Sammy (N Wales)
ah and theres me thinking that it was this dreadful machine of mine!

Rita (France/Bramhall)
That should be a fun day when you are able to go.

Gordina (Cologne/Germany)
I hope you can soon Michael.

 
Michael Praed
And it was a masterpiece of cunning to get me a gift from the MAC store. Mmmmmm. I have my eye on some noise-cancelling earphone type-things for mu iPhone. And once again. THANK YOU ALL!!!!

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
I'm surprised you didn't grab an iPad!

Helen R (UK)
Michael if you were to be in the Wizard of Oz,auditions for Dorothy ongoing,what part would you choose? x


Michael Praed
Well, I've seen the iPad. But not had one to hand. So I'm not sure of it's capabilities and how it might benefit me.

 
Michael Praed
Do you know what? I've never seen The Wizard Of Oz.
 
Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
Never?!


Michael Praed
Never

Jules (Doncaster)
If you could work with one person you haven't yet worked with - alive or dead - who would it be? Obviously you have missed your chance if they have departed this world!


Michael Praed
Frank Sinatra.
 
Clare (Glasgow)
50 is a landmark birthday, do you agree with the concept that 50 is the new 40?


Michael Praed
Okay so Frank was, how shall I put this?, 'tricky'. But pound for pound, for crying out loud, what a talent!


Michael Praed
I'll let you know when I have some perspective! Shall we ask this question when I'm seventy?

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
Sounds like a good plan!

Jules (Doncaster)
Of all the films / programmes / plays you have seen, what role would you have loved to have played?


Michael Praed
Jules: Anything opposite Cary Grant.

sair37 (sair37)
I was wondering if you had any other projects in the pipeline for TV or if Sound of mUsic has 'intefered' with any other plans?


Michael Praed
Sair: SOM hasn't interfered with any other plans. In fact, I've just signed up for another six months.

Gordina (Cologne/Germany)
Would you like to do another musical?


Michael Praed
Gordina: And Hi! Lovely to see you! I would dearly LOVE to do another musical! The thing is, when you do them right, and when the book is right, and the circumstances are for whatever reason in your favour, the extraordinary response you can get from an audience watching a musical is amongst the most profound I have ever felt. So purely from an ego point of view, self-gratification, call it what you will, musicals are wonderfully fulfilling. Does that make sense?

Clare (Glasgow)
Theatre has brought you a new fan base over the past few years (Me since Sleuth), how much pleasure does this bring you?


Michael Praed
Clare: My fans, you guys, are a constant source of surprise and delight. And if theatre brings us closer? Bring it on!

Michele (Reading, UK)
What was it like working with the ever lovely, Simon MacCorkindale in Sleuth?

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
Michele is the head of Simon's official fan club, Michael.

Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
Ahhhhhh.... Sleuth.....


Michael Praed
Michele: Simon was adorable. And we worked so well together. We had different styles, if you like. Perhaps a better way of putting it is: We had different ways of approaching the work (which is not to say mine was ''better than his', or vice versa), but the point is, I think we complimented each other very well. And I adored working with him. And I send him the best love in this, a very trying time.
 
Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
Sleuth was genius with you guys.....

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
For those who are unaware, Simon is undergoing cancer treatments.
 
Gordina (Cologne/Germany)
Your musical “Dreamland” will probably be postponed until after SOM. Are there any new developments? It would be nice to see it. We
heard a snippet of a song, and it sounds very promising.

Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
It was... and still is.... the most fun I've ever had in the theatre.... and I'd give body parts to see even a bit of it again!
(there... I'll shut up now... !)
 
Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
Alex Bourne has a snippet of one of the Dreamland songs on his website.


Michael Praed
Hazel: Thank you. And I agree. In the sense that, I think we did a REALLY good job of a great play.

 
Michael Praed
Celeste: I know. And when I have more about DREAMLAND (my great love, by the way) trust me, I'll be swift to pass the news on!

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
That's good to hear!
 
Mercedes (Perú)
I would like to know if you have a favorite writer -or what kind of books you prefer to read -books about history, biographies, fiction,
spiritual themes, poetry...


Michael Praed
Mercedes: Did you send me stuff from Peru? And if you did? Wow! Thank you SOOO much. I had your coffee only this morning; the poems I've been reading; the maps, perusing; and the CD's, soon, will be on my iTunes! I love Elmore Leonard who is, without doubt, one of THE greatest writers of Crime Fiction alive.
 
Helen R (UK)
Michael,do you ever corpse when narrating for eg Mills and Boon? x


Michael Praed
And apologies if I miss any questions!!! I think you type faster than I can read!

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
And we're moderated now. You should see the queue!

Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
There is quite a queue of questions!

Michele (Reading, UK)
I'll pass on my regards to Simon when I can, not heard from him recently. Thanks


Michael Praed
Helen: I haven't corpsed yet. Actually narrating a book is almost the quintessential definition of labour since you start work at, say, 10, and finish when you finish. Which may be four, five, six, hours later. And, believe me, staring at words and trying to make sense of them for that considerable amount of time is not easy!

Judith (Remscheid/Germany)
How do you keep your playing "fresh" when you have to play the same show over and over again for auch a long time? Is that difficult for you?


Michael Praed
Judith: The trick is to never fall in to the trap of repetition. In other words: It's a fundamental flaw, I think, to try to replicate the show you did last night. The reason being that 'tonight' is a different night; the people are different, the circumstances are different and you, as the individual, are different because it is another day. So the way I approach a performance is to, as it were, 'go with the flow'. So, for example, if it is appropriate in a scene, say, 'to be more angry'', then, I'll be more angry. In other words: I have no definite way in which I am going to perform something. I mean, I have an idea, often a very clear idea, of how I'm going to deliver my lines. This doesn't mean I'm committed to delivering them in a certain way. Far from it. I tend to react how I feel is appropriate given the second I'm speaking. Which is not to say I vary wildly from show to show. I don't. But I allow myself, I give myself permission, if you will, to (if I think it's right) 'go' for something should it feel correct. I hope that answers your question!

Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
That's what I love about coming to see your shows... never the same show twice... it's always exciting and you keep it fresh/interesting.
 
Sammy (N Wales)
would you like to be able to "play" more "bad guys" ? something that you could really get your teeth into ?
 
Michael Praed
It's tough to talk about 'technique', sometimes, without sounding like an arse. But I hope you understand!!!
 
Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
It is a question I hear a lot: "How can he keep the show so fresh!" And Connie mentioned your outlook helped her.

Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
Well they must be doing something right; I heard a group of people behind me in Aberdeen saying it was the best show they'd ever
seen at that theatre!

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
I think Sammy was asking if you'd like to play more "bad guys".

 
Michael Praed
Sammy: As long as they pay me, I'll play anything! However, it's true, bad guys are gorgeous to play!
 
Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
Thanks.

Rita (France/Bramhall)
did your admiration for Frank have any bearing on your daughter's name?

 
Michael Praed
Rita: And HI!!!!! No.

Gordina (Cologne/Germany)
What other musical instruments do you play, beside guitar?


Michael Praed
I play,like Les Dawson, the piano. And once upon a time a made a tit of myself playing the drums.

Gordina (Cologne/Germany)
Isn’t it hard to move from city to city? I think you have a lot of stamina to cope with a schedule like the one you have.

Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
I've just returned to the piano after 20 years of not playing - it's scary...


Michael Praed
GORDINA: Without doubt touring is very tiring. Particularly when moving North/South, East/West all over the country. On the SOM, where we get to 'put down' for, generally, a month at a time, it's much easier since you at least get a sense of belonging to the community for more than a week. (Which, for instance was the case with SLEUTH). In fact for me, it almost takes a week to, as it were, acclimatize to the 'new town', or it to you. Whichever is the case!
 
Katerina (Russia, Siberia)
It`s Katerina. This is not question, it`s reflection. In Russia my generation (who was born in the seventies) is grow up on serial “Robin of Serwood”. You are still love and remember. Life the soviet people of eighties began change. Was broke valuables, ideas, stereotypes… Children is grow up of itself. Robin Hood help many of us find personal way. And 25 years you and we – together))) Great thanks for all.

Eve (New York City)
I am sooooo dying to hear the rest of the music from Dreamland - but do you have any other plays in development (as a writer, that is)?


Michael Praed
KATERINA: THANK YOU. And welcome from RUSSIA! My God, it's so humbling to have people who share a common interest, and even more so, when they are seemingly so far away. Thank you for your comments about Robin Of Sherwood. I'm so glad you liked it and it has/had a resonance for you.


Michael Praed
EVE: I don't have any other developments right as of this moment. Trust me, DREAMLAND is taking all my attention!

Helen R (UK)
My daughter and I are on the front row in Llandudno 2 weeks today,I saw SOM in Manchester and grabbed you when you were trying to get to Sainsburys after the matinee,thank you for you time!!


Michael Praed
HELEN: Well, I hope you enjoy it! It'll be interesting to see what we remember having had three weeks off!

Sammy (N Wales)
Would you like to do a production at the Globe Theatre ?

Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
I hope you're enjoying the break! You guys deserve it!


Michael Praed
SAMMY: If you mean the GLOBE in London? Yes, most definitely. However, I must confess to a little caveat, in that I'm not sure how much I'd like it should it piss down with rain!

Joan (Ashford, Kent.)
Have you ever wanted to do anything Shakespearean, like 'Hamlet'?

 
Michael Praed
A little old for HAMLET, I'm afraid. And no, truthfully, I'm not one of those who have yearned to 'do' Shakespeare. Which is not to say I wouldn't gasp at the opportunity to play something, anything. The fact is, to some degree, small or large, I think I've always been aware of my limitations. And whilst I am in no doubt there are some parts - many, even - I could do; those types of roles have never been in the forefront of my agenda. Give me a part - small or large, ANYTHING - with Martin Scorsese, now we're talking! That's more my thing!

Rita (France/Bramhall)
when you go to the theatre, as a spectator, what kind of production do you prefer, Musicals, drama, shakespeare, comedies etc?

 
Michael Praed
There seems to be a lag at the moment. Which is a good thing, as far as my bladder is concerned! So I'm going to do the 'de- bladdering thing' and I'll be literally right back. Back four pounds lighter.

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
We'll give everyone a bit of a break. Run for it!

Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
Too much information!

 
Michael Praed
RITA: I suppose like many people I wait for 'the word on the street'. And if it's good - and that word moves at warp speed, by the way - if I can, I'll try and catch it. I really don't have a preference for genre. The fact is: If it's good. I'll go see it. Of course, if I've got friends in something, I'll go too.
 
Petra (aka Roheryn) (Wuppertal/Germany)
Michael, I know you are a busy man, but did you ever read the forum posts?

 
Michael Praed
RITA: Mind you, having said that, if Christopher Walken were in the worst reviewed piece of garbage in Theatre History. . . I'd run to see THAT as well! Does that statement now shoot holes in my previous one?

Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
Christopher Walken is genius!

 
Michael Praed
ROHERYN: Believe it or not, I DO tap in from time to time. And I do enjoy, very much, what you write there. And doing this, what do we call it, this chat thing we're now doing, makes me appreciate that I must try and do this more often!
 
Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
Oh, I like the sound of that!
 
Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
Me too

Rita (France/Bramhall)
How do you feel about the amazing variety of countries that are represented here this evening?

 
Michael Praed
RITA: Truthfully, it's taken me a little by surprise there are so many countries from around the world. I must say, you all have the most exquisite taste!

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
We've got UK, US, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Siberia, Peru, and France that I know of.
 
Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
When you've played a particular role for a while do you ever feel sad leaving it behind? Are there any roles you've played that you miss or would love to play again?


Michael Praed
celeste: and the more the merrier!

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
I agree. Poor Katerina is up very VERY late, may I point out?


Michael Praed
HAZEL: It's a god question. And the thing of it is: There ARE roles that, for whatever reason, refuse to leave you. I mean, it's almost as if they're some sort of benign shadow which competes for your attention during the day. It's not surprising, really, when you consider you've invested a great deal of thought - not to mention, emotion - when creating the part. But yes, there can be, often is, a sadness when you finish a job. Because you're not only saying goodbye to the friendships forged, but to the characters which must now die, since - let's be honest - they've been terminated. 

Clare (Glasgow)

You and Simon are responsible for creating so many friendships, this must bring much joy to you

 
Michael Praed
CLARE: Well. . . Anything which brings anyone together can only be a good thing, no?

 
Michael Praed


Michael Praed
Sorry. l HAD to do that! LOVE IT!

Clare (Glasgow)
Do you enjoy the fact that fans wait to see you at theatre doors throughout the country with best wishes and prezzies for you?

Hazel (Flasher's Heath)

 
Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
Too funny

 
Michael Praed
CLARE: Let's be honest: A little discreet adoration never hurt anyone! LOLL

Joan (Ashford, Kent.)
Did you enjoy doing "The Murder Game?" I thought it was great fun and saw it twice. It was a shame it didn't get very good reviews.


Michael Praed
JOAN: I did enjoy the Murder Game. Truth is: It didn't get good reviews because structurally the play was flawed. And it's a tough, hard, brutal thing, getting a plat right. It's not easy. There are very few, I mean VERY few who manage it more often than not (Neil Simon springs to mind). But - in the case of the Murder Game, and my reasons for committing to it - I thought it had possibilities, still do, but in the form which was presented. . . Unfortunately, but honestly, it didn't come up to the bar

Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
The Murder Game was great fun! You do the best Scottish accent I've ever heard (from a non-native)...

Sammy (N Wales)
If you had not become a performing artist, what would you have liked to have done instead ?


Michael Praed
An Haute Couture Brassiere manufacturer

 
Michael Praed
SAMMY: Seriously? A lawyer. Or Pilot.

Hazel (Flasher's Heath)


Alison (aka alipossum6)
Do you have a favourite venue? and why?

Helen R (UK)
Michael R u the invisible user??

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
I'm going to answer Helen's question to give Michael a break.


Michael Praed
ALIPOSSUM6: The Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. She was my first West End Theatre, arguably the MOST radiant, sublime, stunning,
elegant, marvelous, graceful and bewitching theatre within the United Kingdom; and my first love.


Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
Helen, we have a number of invisible users here. It is a setting that we can set on our profile.


Michael Praed
What, for crying out loud, is 'the invisible user'?

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
I'm one, for instance, so what you saw was probably me!
 
Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)

 
Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
You know, like the invisible man. A suit of clothes shows up and wanders around.


Michael Praed
I'm still none the wiser.

Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
Any of us who are "invisible" when we log onto the forum.... we creep about getting up to mischief!
 
Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
There is an area that explains who is online. Those who don't want their names posted can choose to be "invisible".

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
The forum notes a invisible user is around, but not who they are.


Michael Praed
Oh my God, I creep around getting up to mischief. I'm not sure I go about it on the Forum, though.
 
Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
You'd find a way, I'm sure!
 
Petra (aka Roheryn) (Wuppertal/Germany)
I think all of us would appreciate it if you came here more often.

Jules (Doncaster)
Have you been doing anything exciting in your time off since you left Aberdeen?

Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
You're the Stig aren't you?! Own up!


Michael Praed
ROHERYN: Let's see if we can't conspire to make that happen!

Michael Praed
JULES: I've been sitting on my arse doing bugger all.


Michael Praed
more

Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
Quite right too!

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
And loving every moment, we would guess!


Michael Praed
JULES: MInd you, it took me the better part of a week to get back from sodding ABERDEEN because of that bastard volcano.

Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
Oh yeah - how was the train journey?....


Michael Praed
Ummm.
Loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooog

 
Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
Speaking of the Stig...

Sammy (N Wales)
with respect to cars, what would be your ultimate car to own/drive ?


Michael Praed
A Bentley. Mmmmmmm. ANY Bentley.

Gordina (Cologne/Germany)
What important aspects are there to keep in mind with regard to the structure of a play?


Michael Praed
GORDINA: Here are you talking about writing one or performing in one?

Gordina (Cologne/Germany)
Writing one.


Michael Praed
GORDINA: There are rules. And you must obey them. But, conversely, you can break them - like Quentin Tarantino did, for example, in PULP FICTION), but you most have a beginning a middle and an end - and not necessarily in that order - and, above all, you must exceed the expectation of your audience but not in the way he/she expects it. Clear?

Gordina (Cologne/Germany)
Yes, I think so.


Michael Praed
GORDINA: Great! Send me your treatment and I'll make both of us multi-millionaires!

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
Christine hoped to be here tonight but can't. She had a question -

Michael Praed
CELESTE: Let's have it...
 
Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
She was wondering if you had contacted Rob Barff yet, to let him know you'd have to wait until SOM to do you race driving.

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
I hear Rob is eager to coach you. Oddly, one of the last people he coached was Michael Caine... to get back to the 'Sleuth' theme!

Michael Praed
CELESTE: Because I'm a degenerate, no-good, lazy, good for nothing, sonovabitch, I haven't contacted Rob Barff yet. But I will.
Oh, will I!

 
Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
Promises, promises!

Clare (Glasgow)
If you were to be stuck on a desert island with anyone, who would you like it to be and NOT to be?
 
Petra (aka Roheryn) (Wuppertal/Germany)
And what would you like to take with you?

 
Michael Praed
CLARE: To be: That guy from the TV (is it Ray Mears?), the survival expert. Not to be: Me..

Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
What's your fave scene in SoM?

 
Michael Praed
roheryn: Valium

Michael Praed
Chat: HAZEL: I swear on everything that's holy, I don't have a favourite scene.

Eve (New York City)
Where have you been around the world that you'd love to go back to, and where haven't you been that you'd love to see?
 
Jules (Doncaster)
What role have you enjoyed playing the most?


Michael Praed
EVE: Well, I LOVED Jamaica for all the obvious reasons. (And the rum cocktails weren't too bad, either!) And I'd love to see fall in Montreal again. And there's always been a certain allure, for me, the mountains of Switzerland.


Michael Praed
JULES: It's a hard one, this. But Michael Whiley in CONTACT comes as close as any.

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
Despite the dance belt?

 
Michael Praed
CELESTE: You HAD to bring it up!
 
Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)


Michael Praed


Petra (aka Roheryn) (Wuppertal/Germany)
Are you in contact yet with your co-workers of RoS?
 
Helen R (UK)
Good night everyone,my 7 yr old is calling!!! xx

 
Michael Praed
PETRA : Had dinner with Nikolas Grace (Sherriff Of Nottingham) only the other day.

 
Michael Praed
Guys, I'm going to have to call it a night. Is that okay?

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
It certainly is. You've been more than generous with your time.


Michael Praed
We'll do this again. If you like?

Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
We like!

 
Michael Praed
Good. Let's do it
 
Celeste (USA-Wisconsin)
I'd like to thank everyone today for a wonderful chat, Most of all -- Michael! This concludes our chat session for today.
Good-bye, everyone!

Hazel (Flasher's Heath)
If we like? Yeah... go on then!
 
Celeste returns moderated chat back to normal.  People are free to say whatever they like and when.

Mercedes (Perú)
Thank you for this beautiful time -blessings and hugs from Lima! Good night Michael! (I´m very happy you liked my little "tour in a box") :)
