My first film crush was Mark Lester as Oliver Twist in the Carol Reed film.
And Oliver North was really a good soldier, up to the last moment, shoving memos into the shredder and defending the policy to the end.
When I was 12, I played the Artful Dodger in Cameron McKintosh's production of 'Oliver!' when it came to Toronto. Just getting the role shocked my whole family, and I don't think I realized until then just how much I loved getting up in front of people and performing.
I went to see Oliver Stone's 'Heaven & Earth,' which I thought was a wonderful movie, but I walked out because I was so moved. It was too painful to watch.
