My Bacon Number is 2 (via Pierce Brosnan...)


By the original criteria, my Bacon Number is infinite, since I have never acted in a movie; but inflation affects Bacon Numbers just as it does everything else - and the site now allows Bacon Number calculations for any medium featured on IMDB...

Also via John Cleese, which is much cooler!

@WmJas - Indeed - but I never met any of these famous folk in 'real life' - my segments were filmed in the coffee room at my normal workplace and mostly used as voiceovers...

Perhaps the most famous person I properly met - sat down and talked with - was Melvyn Bragg; a highbrow TV and radio presenter (and author) who has been a ubiquitous, albeit niche, presence in the UK media for a very long time... probably more than 40 years.

This was more than 20 years ago, in relation to a regional 'arts' and culture' magazine called Northern Review, that I co-founded and edited (briefly). I was pleasantly surprised by his genuineness.
