I was lucky enough to have been the only journalist who interviewed Tim Curry on the Vancouver set of the two-part TV miniseries It, when I was covering the filming for Fangoria magazine back in 1990.
One of the first questions I had for the British actor was whether or not he was a fan of Stephen King.
In his brief reply Curry mentioned that he felt King was “an extremely entertaining writer”, and “really good at that stuff”, before adding that he would have liked to have been in The Shining.
Have a listen: (You might have to crank the volume a bit. Pretend it’s the latest Black Sabbath reissue.)
