New to BH? Watch out, this post contains spoilers from series one...

 

He's miserable, he's morbid and he's intense... but somehow he's also utterly fantastic.  Yes, Gilbert really is an unusual sort of fellow. 

 

In this exclusive BH Blog interview Alex Price, the man behind the ghost, tells us what it was like getting inside the mind of the sour-faced 80s spirit... and about the truth behind his feelings for Annie.

  • Comment number 3.

    Oh my actual God. I love you BH Blog Team :D

    I love Alex Price/Gilbert more though.

    mmmmmm, best vid ever. I am totally in love. Not just with Gilbert but with Alex too.

    ''Is it?'' still makes me shriek with laughter

    And just yay :D

  • Comment number 4.

    I want to marry him

  • Comment number 5.

    Yup

  • Comment number 6.

    Ok, I sound scary now. If by any ridiculously small chance Alex ever reads this, I'm honestly not a total nutcase :-S

  • Comment number 7.

    Can this go up on YouTube too please? :D

  • Comment number 8.

    *bounces around like Tigger*

  • Comment number 9.

    *pats Sperkii*

    Oh my god I love his hair! It's all long and scruffy. Not that his hair isn't cool when he's gilbert. But just it's even better here.

    I love Gilbert. Maybe not as much as Sperkii does but I still love him

    Though he doesn't half remind me of a friend of mine.

    Great vid anyway =). Thanks.

  • Comment number 10.

    Hmmm, how old is said friend? ;)

  • Comment number 11.

    *sigh* he's so lovely

  • Comment number 12.

    Ok long scruffy hair? You know what sod it ill pay to watch it lol i have to see :-)

  • Comment number 13.

    Haha he looks funny with that hair :-S cant get used to it lol good video though thanks guys :-) youve now put a very big smile on sperks face anyway :-)

    he is lovely - wierd though lol different hair different voice :-) a perfect gilbert though :-) but again such a good actor why have i not seen him before? well apart from the shorts that sperkii found - come on alex pull your finger out we wanna see more of you :-D

    Lol the y front and vpl bit - hilarious :-D well it cracked me up anyway lol

  • Comment number 14.

    *covers ears, lalalalala* It's like blasphemy, eagle!!!

    He's lovely! As Gilbert AND himself :-p

    But, yes, you're quite right about not having seen him in more things. All I could find was him dressed as Lapenotiere for a reenactment and those two shorts on YouTube. We def need to see more of him

  • Comment number 15.

    I love Gilbert, he's one of my fave characters from BH. As somebody who grew up in the 80s and knew people like that I couldn't see someone like him falling for someone like Annie but I think it's a tribute to the writers and to Alex for making it so utterly believable. I think Alex's performance was outstanding, just the little looks he gives Annie when she's working through her Owen-angst and the realisation that he has fallen in love with her.

  • Comment number 16.

    Sperkii, said friend is only 16 I'm afraid.

  • Comment number 17.

    Oh. Rats. Considering I'm less than a month off being 26 I'll have to go back to the drawing board...

  • Comment number 18.

    It's only a 10 year age gap. Give it another 5 or 10 years and it'll be fine. ;)

  • Comment number 19.

    Lol you're lucky C the only BH characters any of the blokes I know remind me of are Owen and Mitchell :-( and thatd be Mitchells bad traits without the looks unfortunately lol well maybe the one exception but he moved away which is helpful.

    Dont think there are many Gilberts out there thats why the one we get to see is so great :-)

  • Comment number 20.

    "is it?" pure class.

    K, and what was the one nostril sniff about hey? ;) upper class sniffing, *tuts*

  • Comment number 21.

    Ok Ive seen that personal affairs advert so many times how have I only just realised that its Annabel in it lol Im meant to be observant! Might have to watch it now - she looks really different though. And where the hell is the blonde from? I think shes off a kids show - possibly? Ive seen her face somewhere but cant rfor the life of me think what shes been in...

  • Comment number 22.

    *sigh* I needed that after another all-nighter doing the reading for my research proposal. Lovely Gilbert/Alex makes it all better :D hopefully it'll keep me going while I actually write it up today

  • Comment number 23.

    Hey guys, cheers for the positive comments... sperkii, have you calmed down now!? :-P

    Out of curiosity, do you agree with what he says about young people having to hide their intelligence these days? We thought that was an interesting comment... what do you guys think?

  • Comment number 24.

    Wow what a lovely surprise! We love him.

    Was Alex in Father Ted at some point? Got a feeling he may have been....

  • Comment number 25.

    It was an interesting comment. I think to some extent it's true. Through most of high school I found that I didn't fit in because I was an intellectual. I wasn't really into science or really any of my lessons but I read a lot and wrote a lot. I mean for a lot of the time I went to a private school (yeah, yeah, I'm posh, whatever) which had a lot of intellectuals in but not like me. Some of them read a bit but only a couple of them wrote (those that were my friends) and so I was picked on quite a bit.
    Plus they all went out at the weekends whereas I would stay in to write. And I got tease a lot for that. Oh and then there were the breaks that I would spend in the library or an empty classroom, I was looked down on for that two.

    I suppose it's most obvious in my first high school though. There I was called names like "boffin" and people expected me to be good at my subjects because I was clever. It was annoying and I was horribly bullied for it (which is why I moved to the private school).

    Anyway at my first school I tried to hide it and change who I was. In the second I didn't bother since I wasn't really liked much there anyway. It was only when I got to my college that I found loads of other writers when I really felt I fitted in and didn't have to hide myself away anymore.

    So yes I think young people do hide their intelligence these days. There's definitely stereotypes (geek, nerd, boffin, ect.) that most young people see as a bad thing to be.

    I mean take what Eagle said on the forum the other day about being worried because she ran a fan forum, joined an online game and was thinking of going to a convention. She was talking about it being a bad thing. And that is because of how we are raised. In school our piers teach us that being intelligent is a bad thing. It's how we grow up and live our lives. And it shouldn't be so!

    Umm so basically my answers yes... sorry about the slightly ranty essay type thing guys.

  • Comment number 26.

    I dunno about the hiding your intelligence thing. I suppose it might depend what sort of tribe you feel you belong to such as whether you're a Goth or Skater boy/girl.

    I mean back in the 80s not everyone listened to the The Smiths and recited morose texts to eachother. Some of us were out clubbing, drinking purple cocktails and listening to Club Tropicana in our cut off jeans!!

  • Comment number 27.

    But that's the thing Drivingsuzanne. People have the constant need to stereotype each other. Which is exactly why people feel the need to hide their intelligence. Young people are afraid of being seen as nerdy or geeky so they play down their intellect.

  • Comment number 28.

    I totally get what you're saying Cieria. Maybe things aren't that different now to what they were then.

    But as someone who grew up in the 80s I don't think I had much intelligence to hide in the first place.

  • Comment number 29.

    I think, when you are secondary school age, you either have to hide your intelligence or get picked on. I was called 'square' for almost my entire secondary school life because I worked hard and did well, until one day one of the popular girls decided she liked me after all and called off all the others with 'Hey, leave off, Sperkii's alright'.

    At the time all of that really upset me. If anyone tried to make me feel inferior now, I'd laugh it off (unless I knew I'd done something wrong). One of my favourite sayings is 'noone can make you feel inferior without your permission'. And now my shame most definitely comes from not being well read/cultured/intelligent ENOUGH.

    I think it basically depends on a lot of things - the people surrounding you, the culture surrounding you, the broader social context and (I think most importantly) how you feel about yourself.

    Woah, that post was way too long and probably not even what you were asking. Sorry BH Prod.

    Also, sorry for my Gilbert/Alex enthusiasm :-S It's ok, I couldn't bounce around like Tigger even if I wanted to now (been working on research proposal for 24hrs now and still got a lot more to do).

    Meh.

    Yes. Just yes. Completely. I agree with every last word.

    Ugh I just realised that all my passion in my post earlier came from the breakdown I had the other day on my writing forum. :/ It's all connected. :(

  • Comment number 31.

    I dont think she'll ever calm down :-)

    Hmm its certainly an interesting one - I think it can go either way - I went to a grammar school so it was maybe a little different but the thick kids were picked on for being stupid and the clever ones got picked on for being too smart! So they couldn't really win lol but not entirely sure I really had the teenage phase of trying to fit in etc so I think I was kinda excluded from that - I didn't particularly get picked on once I was at secondary school well I did but it didnt really bother me past about 3rd year I've always just liked what I liked and I had a few close friends who were into similar things - I wasn't part of the cool gang but then I never really wanted to be :-S theres only so long I can listen to a conversation about lipgloss before wanting to shoot myself just so I have an excuse to leave...

    I have to say though its interesting seeing it from the other side now - there are some girls doing my college course who have come straight from school and I do think its quite funny - we'll be half way through a talk and theyre sat there re applying mascara lol they do seem to think its cool though to be stupid - id say about half the class are maybe straight from school and you really can tell the difference - its an awful thing to say because I do believe that age is just a number but the ones on my course - God forbid one of us uses a word more than 2 sylables lol they're giggling, theyre ooohing and then asking the tutor what we just said :-S

    Sperkii you have a point though - it seems a little odd that they spend half their life trying to dumb it down then the other half trying to look clever and buying certain books just so people see them on the coffee table lol

    Sorry long post again :-S its a tough one though because I didnt really grow up "normally" lol I was surrounded by purely adult company which I think might have made me a bit mature beyond my years :-( think C's probably the one to go with because she's still kind of at school so maybe knows better than us :-S

  • Comment number 32.

    I don't know. I'm too cool and stupid to understand the question.


    I think this is pointless. Generalization much? Intelligence is subjective. I see great intelligence in my friends who didn't do their G.C.S.E's. I see immense stupidity amongst friends with masters degrees.

    The people that I surround myself with are intelligent and bright and wonderful and diverse.

  • Comment number 33.

    Oooh, also, I think it's important to always try to stay true to who you really are. That popular girl didn't change her mind about me because I had changed to please her or to fit in, it was just one of those silly things where I was the new girl and people had nothing better to do. In the end I think they forgot why they even started picking on me in teh first place.

    I could have got involved in all sorts in an attempt to stop the bullying but that would have meant behaving out of character and probably ending up in a lot of trouble. As it was I just stuck it out and then, that one bizarre day, it suddenly became acceptable for me to be the person I had been all along.

  • Comment number 34.

    super, yours is the best post of all and you are absolutely right :D

  • Comment number 35.

    Still lmao re 'I don't know. I'm too cool and stupid to understand the question' :D :D

  • Comment number 36.

    Sp-"I think it basically depends on a lot of things - the people surrounding you, the culture surrounding you, the broader social context and (I think most importantly) how you feel about yourself."

    Agreed. Most importantly it's about how you see yourself. If you have confidence you can interact with anyone, of any class, education, career, finance divide. If you have to hide your form of intelligence then maybe you aren't reaching yourself enough.

  • Comment number 37.

    Always be yourself no matter what. Changing yourself to fit in is stupid even if you do hear voices in your head.

  • Comment number 38.

    lmao Cie. Yep, no matter what. ;)

  • Comment number 39.

    Lol thank you guys I really needed a giggle - Super I agree though there are people I went to school with who have gone on to do degrees and yeah they were good at uni and their degrees but still have absolutely no common sense lol

  • Comment number 40.

    As funny as my wonderful comment "the voices in your head" thing was completely serious. If you have voices in your head you should accept it as a sign of your creativity not decide to change and be normal.

    Sorry. I'll shut up now.

  • Comment number 41.

    I know Cie. I replied in understanding and still laughed. You are very funny and you don't even know it most of the time. :)

    Too true Eagle.

  • Comment number 42.

    Thanks super.

    I need to put this thing behind me and move on.

    ugh I should probably explain what I mean shoudn't I?

    Come on the forum and ask me there and I'll tell you what happened the other night. That's if you want to know of course. If you don't then don't feel obliged to ask.

  • Comment number 43.

    Cie. You don't need to explain anything to me I think we know each other well enough by now. I've got to run. :) Tell you what, why don't you text me or put it in a mail or wait till I get back. You've got my text right? Bfn x

  • Comment number 44.

    hello thanks for the video guys it was very good

    to the question you asked yes in this day and age if your smart you really do have to act like your thick or you get bulled really bad (try being smart and fat school was a living nightmare)

    but no one should hide who they really are there's no point its the little quirks in us that makes life interesting

  • Comment number 45.

    Texted you Super. :) Thanks for letting me get this off my chest.

  • Comment number 46.

    C is this same thing as other night? Or new thing? :-( *hugs* either way and youve got my number if you want me :-) smile :-) says me whos walking round with a face like a smacked backside lately lol

    Ok, off-topic a bit but have all of you seen The Munsters (the original black and white one I mean, not that new colour one)? I used to watch it when I was younger and loved it. Just reliving it on YouTube :D

  • Comment number 49.

  • Comment number 50.

    I just thought Lily and Herman were the sweetest people ever. It was such a good prog.

  • Comment number 51.

    Oh is Barrys new one up yet Sperk? He said June sometime its not been June very long so dont think it will be but dont wanna miss out lol

  • Comment number 52.

    I'd want them as my neighbours and friends :)

  • Comment number 53.

    What was I talking about the other night E? I've forgotten. I may have told you the sketchy details. :/

  • Comment number 54.

    No, eagle. It says 'screened his latest short film last night and it went down well...will be getting it on YouTube soon!'

  • Comment number 55.

    yay :-)

    my cameras gone strange - its working fine as far as i can tell but its got a red flashing thing on the screen it looks like a battery with a line through it but i charged it last night and my little battery icon thing is full... confused its never done it before :-S and its doing it in playback too - wierd

  • Comment number 56.

    Fine just ignore my comment. :/

  • Comment number 57.

    Really hope its not on its way out :-( although would be an excuse to get a nice shiny new one lol no musnt waste money on gadgets...priorities...mac first lol no bills first :-( anyway dont mind my little camera the fact its rubbish kinda makes me even prouder if i make something good lol daft I know - but I am :-D

  • Comment number 58.

    Haha just watching back some old tapes of stuff I did ages ago :-P

  • Comment number 60.

    yeah calm down C sorry just not concentrating :-S sorry :-)

  • Comment number 61.

    Nah. I'm talking about something different. Something happened the other night on my other forum and it affected me badly.

  • Comment number 62.

    oh i see :-S well you know im not very good at advice btu *hug* is about the best ive got lol

    rargh this is bugging me now - C i think you might be right i may actually have to look for the manual although im nto entirely sure it even came with one and if it did i probably threw it away with the box :-S i dont normally throw boxes for stuff away so dunno why i did :-( actually its probably in mums loft thinking about it...will check next time im there.

    Right need some air C will talk later - should think ill be back on before i go to work but if not night night :-)

    K I'm back Cie, I got your text but I was busy climbing trees (I perfected the swing dismount today-don't ask). I'll be about on FB chat if you want to talk. :)

    Erm new topic.. class divides? *smirks and runs off*

  • Comment number 65.

    lol sorry - bad youtube! off to the naughty step again...

  • Comment number 66.

    Oh my god, I 'heart' Alex Price! what a cool little interview, he's so sweet with the floppy hair and the posh 'so not like manc Gilbert' accent.

    And yes, I identify with what he says about intelligence, I was always the swot at school who wasn't part of the 'cool' gang, but so what?

  • Comment number 67.

    No way I'm off for 2 days and look what arrives!!!
    I love, love, love Gilbert soooooo much.
    Alex Price is a total gem as well, and it's so strange to hear him with a different voice.
    THANK YOU BHP, I LOVE YOU A MILLION TIMES FOR THIS!
    If you've got any more Gilbert gems hidden back there then we want to see them.
    Long live Gilbert!

    Ahem, giddy fit mostly over.... yeah i think Alex has a point about young people hiding their intelligence, mainly to be cool and to fit in. In my experience it wasn't till i grew up a bit and became more of my own person that i started not to care what others thought too much. Though sometimes i still find myself 'acting' to fit in with the crowd more.



    yay Gilbert xx

  • Comment number 68.

    awesome little video BHP! Thanks!!!

    as for hiding your intelligence.....

    I think at high school it could def help. i was ridiculously quiet at a below average performing high school and was always being called the class 'swot' 'nerd' etc...its difficult to hide it when you're always getting A's and silly 'best in class' certificates. i was also relatively quite well spoken compared to the majority of the class (mum was always on my back about diction as a child!), which added to the 'problem'.

    But as soon as I got to uni, you realise that in your year are at least another 200 'swots' all with the same common interest, and infact during some teaching sessions it was beneficial to show off your intelligence!!!



    Don't know if anyone else has noticed though, but after a few weeks at uni you tend to develop this really annoying, generic, private-school-like accent!?!
    -takes sooooo much effort to hold onto your original 'less smart' sounding one!!!

  • Comment number 69.

    Uh oh, shellmoby...would you step outside please? ;)

  • Comment number 70.

    Hi, sorry not been around, (better late etc...) thanks BH. that was fab..I really loved Gilbert..and how fab is Alex??...

    While Toby is working out how to bring Herrick back 'cos of popular demand...maybe he should do the same with Gilbert. Maybe because Annie turned down death by not going through the door, 'They' think she needs help so Gilbert is sent back to guide her.

    Oh please I would love to see Gilbert again,pl, pl, pl, please

  • Comment number 71.

    I want Herrick back :-( especially after the dream I had last night he really is a brilliant kick ass vampire lol - flashbacks? Please *fluttery eyelashes* :-D

  • Comment number 72.

    lol Sperkii - are we fighting over Alex, or are you beating me up for being a swot? Put 'em up, put 'em up ;P

    Don't worry, I'm still completely so completely obsessed by Mitchell it's pathetic......

  • Comment number 73.

    And look, I can't even construct a sentence properly now....so much for being intelligent... he he

  • Comment number 74.

    Lol shellmoby you noticed the fact your sentance structure wasnt correct...dont worry you're still a swot lol

    After reading this ive pretty much come to the conclusion that all BH fans are geeks...well actually perhaps just all the ones who come on the blog lol I self diagnosed myself as one the other say during a conversation with C...yes I know it really did take far too long lol apparently geeks arent very observant :-S

  • Comment number 75.

    Yes, I think it says something about us, the way we can come on here and still be able to analyse and dissect the characters of a six-part series that finished 4 months ago...it probably also says something about Toby's genius in creating his characters too though. This is why I used to love English Literature classes at school/college...although talking about BH is infinitely more entertaining!!

  • Comment number 76.

    shellmoby...which do you think considering my other comments on this thread ;) nothing wrong with being a swot and/or a geek! :D

  • Comment number 77.

    lol very true :-P mind you I always loved english lit and media - not just the writing/making but the over analysis of every little thing - my idea of fun lol not that youd know it what with me being such a quiet little thing on here ... although had many fallings out with my media teacher because i was prepared to argue my point to the death lol thing is i was nearly always right which she didnt like :-P but then i wasnt there much so when i was there i had to make up for it by being total swot lol even though she did give me F's the whole way through...luckily it wasnt her marking my film or my exam :-D

  • Comment number 78.

    Speaking of which my media studies teacher has just been on the telly :-) my life in verse episode 2 - I said before that Robert Webb went to my school well anyway he did this show and shes on it apparently talking about TS Elliott but Im not sure havent seen it yet going to iplayer it tomorrow - my school is on it too my old english classroom...all very surreal :-)

  • Comment number 79.

    lol Sperkii...I thought as much. Well how about we share him, and then we'll let all the others fight over Mitchell....

    Eagle...yes the over analysis of every little detail is definitely what distinguishes 'normal' from 'geek' (and I'm including myself in the latter category for the record!). I mean how much did I get caught up on finding a reason for the fingerless gloves...... and then of course the whole discussion about the difference between Gilbert's door and Annie's door (did you like what I did there....just brought it neatly back to topic so no-one tells me off!)

  • Comment number 80.

    I never got the gilbert is sexy thing, but after watching that interview i might have just changed my mind

  • Comment number 81.

    Please make this available to watch
    Gilbert = Love ^_^

  • Comment number 82.

    shellmoby, yeah alright then...SUPPOSE I could cope with that ;)

    I get the Aidan thing, with his cheeky smile and gorgeous accent, but it's Gilbert/Alex all the way for me! I'll never understand the Mitchell love though

  • Comment number 85.

    With regard’s to the idea of hiding one’s intelligence nowadays, I’ll agree. I’m still in my 2nd year of GCSE’s at this point, so I should probably be able to comment. Yes, I’m at a girls’ private school (go ahead, call me posh, it really doesn’t bother me), and heaven knows I’ve had enough stick over the years, even though I don’t consider myself particularly clever.

    I do reasonably well in class (as long as it’s not sporting), and I’ve usually got a book in my hand and ten things going on at once, but that doesn’t constitute intelligence. And yet I have been teased for things like that. Well, not so much teased as got sarky (sp?) nasty remarks along the lines of ‘teacher’s pet’ and ‘stuck up little nerd’ said just behind me, within earshot. So what that I’m a self-confessed fanfic-er and my idea of a satisfying hour is one spent ordering my computer files? I’d have much more to say about vomiting over one’s bedcovers and wearing low-cut tops (yes, it happens at private schools too). Which little bright spark decided that intellectual was un-cool? My parents tell me constantly how much they looked up to the clever kids, those ones in the corridors discussing the plosive vowel sounds during the balcony scene in ‘Romeo and Juliet’ (and they definitely weren’t the nerdy ones there; they went out and had fun and got drunk too). Expanding one’s mind and increasing one’s thinking skills is something that is looked up to in my household. I also notice my friends (and yes, if there’s a boffin club, it’s my small friendship group) doing and saying things that they think will make them more IN. They tell me off for translating French passages and exclaiming loudly that they “simply must read this new fanfiction I found on the site” (mostly ‘being human’ fanfic at that; I am very loyal), in case it reflects on them. As far as I’m aware, they have no desire to be part of the IN crowd, but unconsciously seek approval, and walk and talk differently when we pass one of the cool kids in the corridor. So, Alex Price, you’ve got that darn straight.

    As for the state school sector, well I do still have some friends from there. All pretty intelligent, yes, but I do feel that one of them in particular hides her intelligence. Though I can’t really comment; you’d have to ask her.

    Sorry for the long and rambling essay-ish post (you ought to see me when I go into full thesis mode).
    Thanks.
