Using The Force
During his final year at LAMDA, Richard got a small job speaking a single line the the film Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Although he was unidentifiable in the film due to the character being a computer graphic, he was still recognised by fans after the film was released.
When he was a child Richard fell into a pond while still in his pushchair, which has led to a fear of water and drowning.
