A life in pictures
5.5 01. Pamela Hayden
Role: Hanger on.
Identical Traits: Nerdy, Glasses, best friend with cool kid, walkie talkies, mother fixation, stuffed animal
The nerd who thought they were cool. I hung around with the cool kids, but on reflection, I was probably just their slave.
7.3 02. Mark Lester
Role: Confused outsider
Identical Traits: Street urchin, pale, In a world I wasn't made for, quiet, scared.
I went into a high achieving convent school full of middle class girls who had been learning French since they were 2. Having come from the ghetto, I spent the first few years of school like a rabbit in the headlights.
7.2 03. Jack Wild
The Artful Dodger
Role: Loveable Rouge
Identical Traits: Street urchin, Cockney, Laugh-a-minute, Cheeky.
I soon realised that my working class routes were some what of a commodity among the middle-classers and cut my niche as the joker/cockney rogue.
6.5 04. Richard E. Grant
Withnail & I
Role: Very English drunkard.
Identical Traits: Fully stocked wine rack, vast knowledge of liqueurs, annihilated liver, Thespian aspirations, unfounded snobbery, manipulative.
Too much of my time is spent in wine bars and pubs or drinking Co-op Prosecco in inappropriate places. I have also tried rubbing myself in deep heat to keep out the cold.
6.9 05. Maggie Gyllenhaal
Age: Mid to late 20s
Role: Sexually deviant colleague
Identical Traits: Easily manipulated, sex crazed, power hungry, middle of the road job.
As I settle into a proper long term career, this is inevitable for me, considering how easily I get bored and my attraction to authority figures.
7.2 06. Winona Ryder
Age: Early 30s
Role: Sectioned nutter
Identical Traits: On the fringe on sanity, underlying bitterness, prescription drug dependency
It seems a fair assumption that at some point I will be sectioned by my family, albeit short term.
7.3 07. Sandra Bullock
Age: Mid 30s
Role: Loner hippy/witch
Identical Traits: Inner hippy, outer consumerist, country lover, amateur gardener
I'll head out to the country about this time and get in touch with my inner gypsy, maybe crack out a potion or two.
7.2 08. Anjelica Huston
The Addams Family
Age: Late 30s
Role: Odd ball

Late in life, I will settle down with an odd-ball gentleman and go ahead and have some equally odd children.
7.1 09. Julie Walters
Identical Traits: Sewing Skills, mollycoddling, fertility, love of kettles
Family bliss will ensue, as many children as possible under one roof, large stews for dinner and gnomes in the back garden.
7.4 010. Lesley Nicol
East is East
Age: 50s +
Role: Old wife
Identical Traits: Gossip, Wall Leaner, Commoner
The remainder of my life will be spent gossiping with chums over back garden walls, going on pensioner weekend breaks and making the most of an endless amount of free time.
