"Dick Grant is one of my favorite people to work with. Anyone who can match me stroke for stroke when I go over the top is a man I admire. He's a true scenery chewer's scenery chewer!"Richard E. Grant is a British actor originally from the small African nation of Swaziland. One of his earliest, and still one of his best-known, roles was as Withnail in Withnail and I. Other notable roles include the villain in Hudson Hawk, the hero in Warlock, Dr Seward in Bram Stoker's Dracula, and the title character in the 1999 TV version of The Scarlet Pimpernel. He has played two different and non-canonical versions of the Doctor, first in the charity spoof Doctor Who: The Curse of Fatal Death, and then in the animated expanded universe special Scream of the Shalka (which was this close to becoming canon, had the 2005 revival not happened); he was eventually cast as the villain in the 2012 Christmas Special, "The Snowmen". Strangely, this means he played the Ninth and Tenth Doctors, before fighting the Eleventh.Grant has been an avid diarist since childhood, and has published the diaries he's made during filmmaking in two books, With Nails and The Wah-Wah Diaries. He's also written a satirical novel on the making of a disaster movie, By Design. He is now on Twitter too.He also wrote and directed the 2005 film Wah-Wah, inspired by his own childhood experiences.
