5 things Robert Glenister can’t live without
Source: Express UK
1 Letters from idols
Robert Glenister: When I was 23 I was performing at the National Theatre in a production of Brighton Beach Memoirs, which is an autobiographical tale of the celebrated playwright Neil Simon’s childhood.
I had always been a huge fan of Neil Simon’s work and was overwhelmed when he wrote me a very complimentary letter about how well I’d played my part.
Just a couple of weeks later Anthony Hopkins, another idol of mine, came to watch the show and left me a handwritten note, congratulating me on my performance.
Thirty years on I still have these letters tucked away in a scrapbook and they remain two of my most treasured possessions.
2 Red wine
Robert Glenister: I love cooking and to my mind there is nothing quite like sitting down to a really good meal with a lovely glass of red wine.
Unfortunately I am not much of a wine connoisseur but I do love a bottle of spicy Australian shiraz as it has such a powerful punch.

If I was ever banished to a desert island I think I’d survive if I could be allocated a weekly wine quota.
I don’t want to get through bottles but I think a couple of glasses a day would definitely help to keep me sane.
Robert Glenister: The first holiday I went on with Celia was to the resort of Kalami on the north-east tip of the island.
We discovered that it was where author Gerald Durrell found his inspiration for his memoir My Family And Other Animals.
Celia and I recently returned there, more than 20 years after our first visit, and I’m relieved to report that it has hardly changed and remains as lovely as ever.
It is a magical place and if ever I could afford to while away my dotage in the sun, it would be the perfect place to set up a second home.
4 Family photo In my bedroom
Robert Glenister: I have a photo of my great-grandparents on my mother’s side.
They are young in the picture and clearly very much in love. My mother’s family came from Gorseinon, a town near Swansea.
I spent a lot of time there as a child and remain close to my Welsh roots. Her grandfather, my greatgrandfather – the man beaming from my photo frame – was something of a local success story as he set up a thriving building business and built almost every new house in the town.
I did meet him a couple of times but I’d have loved to have known him better as I am very proud of everything he achieved.
5 Drum set
Robert Glenister: When I was a teenager I had a wonderful drum set which I saved up for and bought myself.
It provided me with endless amounts of joy. My friends and I even set up a band.
It was enormous fun but when we all left home it fell apart and sadly I had to leave my drum set behind.
Ever since then I have longed for another set of drums and a soundproofed man-cave to play them in.
So far I haven’t managed to get either but with Christmas just days away, I’m still hopeful.
