The original title of the book: Do You Know Who I Am?: A Memoir

From his appearance as Ronald Merrick in the television adaptation of The Jewel in the Crown to his recent role in the hit play King Charles III, Tim Pigott-Smith has been recognised as one of Britain's most loved contemporary actors. On stage his work encompassed the Bristol Old Vic, Royal Shakespeare Company, National Theatre, West End and Broadway. He acted with Jeremy Irons, Charles Dance, Anthony Hopkins, Michael Caine, Peggy Ashcroft and Judi Dench and collaborated with a host of famous directors, from his late friend Howard Davies, to John Huston and Peter Hall.

In his memoir, Do You Know Who I Am?, Pigott-Smith describes the actor's craft with witty anecdotes and fascinating insight. He recalls his childhood and early beginnings in the paint shop at the RSC Stratford, the life of a jobbing actor in 1960s and 70s London, strange meetings with glamorous Hollywood producers, filming a football match with Pelé in Hungary, the epic Indian saga of The Jewel in the Crown and more recent projects such as Mike Bartlett's King Charles III, first performed at the Almeida Theatre and later transferred to Wyndham's Theatre in the West End, Broadway and to film.

What is the story of Judi Dench and the black glove? What was it like to visit Michael Caine's LA mansion? How does one produce the character of the complex and unforgettable Corporal Merrick? Humorously written, warm, engaging and accompanied by black and white photographs, Do You Know Who I Am? is an entertaining memoir from one of our great acting talents.

Tim Pigott-Smith died in April 2017, shortly before this book was published, having passed final proofs for press.

Charming and engrossing...This is a memoir that young actors should read to understand the graft needed to succeed. Pigott-Smith writes how he acts: with precision and panache. --Sunday TimesExquisitely written...Tim was such a remarkable man and a remarkable actor. Now it is clear he was a remarkable writer too. --Dame Judi Dench

    A lovely book by a lovely man.

    A very thoughtful and well written memoir of an actor at the top of his game many years after he first came to the publics attention as Ronald Merrick in Jewel in the Crown on ITV. He has been a consummate actor on both stage and screen over the past few decades whilst being able to live a quiet family life out of the limelight, which is no' mean feat. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.
