Robert Llewellyn undergoes his traditional Trial by Plaster.

There's a certain bond that develops between actors and make-up people over the years - especially when the actor in question regularly has his head coated in glue and rubber to the point where he can no longer easily consume food. So it was that on Thursday, June 8th Andrea Finch and Robert Llewellyn greeted each other as if they were veterans of some terrible (yet humorous) war to begin the process of casting Robert's body, hands and face in preparation for Red Dwarf - The Movie.

Plaster king Paul Spateri - whose work you might have seen in Candyman, The Mummy and the forthcoming Harry Potter movie - and his team began by covering the room in plastic sheeting. Between that and the white coveralls, there was a distinct X-Files vibe to the day. By the time it came to squeezing Robert into a leotard and coating him in skin cream this correspondent was checking the room for anything that looked probe-like!

...Y'know, that sounds... painful. Suffer for the art, eh? I remember it was odd seeing him out-of-costume the first time!

He does scrap heap challenge and a show that exposed scientific blunders in famous films. He is a really funny guy, and HE'S ENGLISH!
