Last night the red carpet was unfurled once more in the capital for the World Premiere of Roger Goldby’s The Time of Their Lives. The event was held at the Curzon Mayfair in London and was attended by Dame Joan Collins, Pauline Collins, Franco Nero, Sian Reeves, Andres Velencoso and Allene Quincy. The director Roger Goldby and producers Sir Tim Rice and Sarah Sulick were also on hand to talk  through the production.

We spoke to Dame Joan and Franco Nero, who talked about his work on the classic 1981 movie Enter the Ninja which he admits he ended up directing much of. He also confirms he’ll appear in John Wick 3, which is great news as it’s another piece of confirmation that Keanu Reeves will be back as the eponymous hitman.
