Legends Steven Berkoff & Julian Glover on their careers, working on films James Bond, Star Wars, A Clockwork Orange, Indiana Jones, and Prizefighter with Matt Hookings.

Today on the show, we’re not just welcoming one filmmaker, not two, but three! Actors Steven Berkoff & Julian Glover as well as actor/producer/writer Matt Hookings! All three have worked on the new film Prizefighter: The Life of Jem Belcher (2022), which also stars Russell Crowe & Ray Winstone.

Our host, Giles Alderson, and Matt brought Steven and Julian together to talk about their long career. They dive deep into how they got into acting in the first place, the difference between theatre and film, what they expect from a director and what roles excite them.

They also talk about their new film Prizefighter, how they came on board and share many anecdotes about legendary directors like Stanley Kubrick, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg. It’s the first time they’ve sat in a room together in 50 years and it’s their first time on a podcast. You’ll hear stories that they have never shared before in an interview. So, sit, back, relax and listen to this week’s episode with Steven Berkoff, Julian Glover, and Matt Hookings.

PRIZEFIGHTER: THE LIFE OF JEM BELCHER is out this Friday 22nd July!

At the turn of the 19th century, Pugilism was the sport of kings and a gifted young boxer fought his way to becoming champion of England.
