Star Wars and Lord of the Rings in a one man show

He has a strong claim to being the world's greatest living geek actor.

Canadian Charlie Ross has been touring around the globe with his one-man shows of Star Wars and Lord of the Rings for 14 years.

A self-confessed geek, his big breakthrough came not from a theatre review, but a review in technology blog Slashdot.

It brought him to the attention of the "George Lucas family", who approved of his endeavours, allowing him to play to thousands at Star Wars conventions.
