Right before lockdown started, Ray went to Sicily and shortly after, found himself stuck in a villa on a mountainside waiting for the next plane home.
In a rare interview during lockdown, Tamer hears how Ray grew up in the East end, working on market stalls and down the docks with his Dad, Uncles and family friends. He loved his family life and recounts how he misses his Dad's hollering now he is sadly departed.
Ray explains how he got into acting, how he found his breaks and his Dad's praise for his successes, and talks to Tamer about his frustrations in the treatment of his Dad's illness that pushed him to the edge of coping.
