Full Disclosure with James O'Brien
Thursday, 18 November
When he published his first memoir back in 2014, the actor and author Alan Cumming took a deep dive and opened up about his traumatic childhood. In his second memoir, Baggage: Tales from a Fully Packed Life, he dispels the myth that he had 'overcome' his trauma or 'triumphed' over it. Cumming believes that a willingness to be vulnerable is what captivates audiences, whether it be on stage or on screen, and he boasts an eclectic filmography ranging from Stanley Kubric's Eyes Wide Shut to Spice World. In this episode of Full Disclosure, he speaks to James about what he values about all of these experiences. His second memoir is out now.
