Michael Gambon Owns Up
The 53-year-old actor, who plays DENTON BAXTER in the new Western film, found it easier to do a Gaelic accent and made up his own version of American history.
Gambon says, "When Kevin asked what sort of American accent I was going to use, I told him I was going to do it in Irish since I'd done a lot of research and discovered that Irish immigrants came out West in the 1870's."
Gambon - the new DUMBLEDORE in Harry Potter films - went on, "Of course, I was lying."
Michael has famously been a little economical with the truth, once telling an interviewer he started as a dancer in the ROYAL BALLET and another that he used to be gay, but had to give it up because it made his eyes water.26/03/2004 14:15
