Terence Stamp

Food for Thought, Series 3 Episode 1 of 5

Actor Terence Stamp shares the joys of raw fruit and vegetables and the delight of the alphonso mango with Nina Myskow.

Raised in Plaistow, East London, one of five children to a tugboat-owner father, when he took himself off to drama school the joke was he would do anything for a bowl of soup. Catapulted to 60s icon status and finally able to afford rich food, Terence describes the effect steak and kidney pudding had on his health.

Attuned to the creative possibilities of brown rice, Terence discusses life as a food intolerant, from designing his own dinners, to how he stays healthy. Plus how he shocked Brigitte Bardot, the roast potatoes his mother used to make and how he loves to indulge his passion for an alphonso mango.
