It doesn't seem that the Disney remake machine has already experienced some kind of fatigue. While critics may not love too much "The Lion King" and "Dumbo" may have been a bit of a disappointing performer, the CGI-powered remake of Jon Favreau's 1994 animation movie "The Lion King" is raking in the money this weekend.

Can we really call the new Lion King remake a “live action movie?”   Isn’t it CGI?  I mean, it’s going to be an amazing movie. It’s a great story. The Lion King?! It’s a CLASSIC! But I don’t think we can call it “live action.”  Disney is poppin’ out the remakes left and right! Don’t get me wrong. I’m […]

FORMER River City star Gary Lamont believed his career was ready to be given its last rites after he quit the soap – when he started conducting funerals. The 35-year-old actor, who played camp hairdresser Robbie Fraser for eight years, moved to London after quitting Shieldinch in 2017. Gary Lamont started conducting funerals after leaving River City But he felt he had made a grave mistake when he needed to become a civil celebrant to make ends meet. Gary, who has now officiated over 30 funerals in the capital, says: “I must admit by the third one I thought to myself, ‘What the hell am I doing this for?’ Lewis Capaldi branded ‘a d**k’ by ex-Taggart and River City star Colin McCredie in Twitter outburst “But when I moved to London, I soon discovered it’s very expensive and you have to get busy quickly.” The telly favourite bowed out of the soap two years ago when he ran away with 90s pop group Steps. Singer Claire Richards even made a cameo appearance, when she arrived in Shieldinch looking for a new hairdresser for the band. And although the work offers haven’t exactly flooded in, Gary insists he’s still happy he took the leap of faith. He explains: “If I wanted a steady pay cheque I would have stayed at River City forever. It’s a big wake-up call when you make break “I’m not going to lie though, it was a big wake-up call when you make that break and leave as everyone thinks you’re a multi-millionaire just because you’ve been on the telly. “People were always asking ‘Have you been working?’, but apart from corporate events and my own stage shows, the truth is no, I haven’t.” On advice of a pal, Gary tried his hand at conducting funerals. He says: “I have a friend in Scotland who is a humanist celebrant and she thought I’d be great at it. “So I trained to become a civil celebrant and very quickly started doing funerals because weddings are booked too far in advance and I didn’t want to wait. Gary’s character went off to be a hairdresser for Steps Gary with co-star Scott Ryan Vickers “Weddings basically take two years to organise, but funerals are a two week turn around, which sounds horrendous, but it’s true. I’ve done about 30 plus in the last year and a bit. “The first one I did in West London was for a Scottish widower. I thought ‘Oh no, I’m totally rumbled here’, but thankfully he had lived in England for 35 years so didn’t have a clue who I was. “Essentially what it boils down to is being good with people and I like to think I am. That’s essential as the families are going through a horrific time. “I think that a celebrant is actually a bit of a welcome relief in amongst all the hell that they’re going through. They want to share the deceased’s life stories with me. So you have empathy and compassion for them but you can’t take on board their grief, or you’d never get your work done. He says Graham Norton gave him great career advice “But weirdly, writing up the scripts then officiating it, is like a really messed up stage performance because you have to stand up and deliver it.” His stint performing services for the last 14 months has now formed the basis of his new touring stage show Fancy A Stiff One? The cheeky title was actually the suggestion of his BBC chat show host buddy Graham Norton. He says: “Graham has been a friend for the last three years. He regularly invites me to go and see his show being taped. Gary doesn’t regret leaving the steady work behind “I was at the Madonna one in June when she was being an absolute monster and acting all awkward with Sir Ian McKellen. But Graham took it all in his stride. He’s been doing it for a long time and is a total professional.” Gary, who was raised in Glasgow’s Castlemilk district by folks Grace and John, adds: “He also took me to see Take That in May at London’s O2 with Dawn Steele. “I’ve been her friend since she joined River City four years ago and we’ve always stayed in touch. “We had a glass of wine with Lulu in her dressing room, as she was performing Relight My Fire with the boys. She was brilliant. I was a wee bit embarrassed as I used to sing her songs on stage. “But she looks and sounds incredible and has more energy than many 30-year-olds I know.” But the Scot reveals how the 56-year-old Irishman — recently revealed as one of the BBC’s top earners on £610,000 a year — also gave him a career pep talk. He says: “When I left River City I did think ‘right what the hell am I going to do now?’ and that’s when I thought about doing a comedy stage show, but I was loathe to call it stand-up, as I’m not a comedian. “But then Graham told me he started as an actor, then did stand-up. “He gave me a really good bit of advice — ‘relax — you’re just telling stories. That’s all you’re doing. It’s conversational. So just be yourself.’ “So I took his advice and that’s what I do. Get up there and be myself.” [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN NEWS” posts_category=”76″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] Another super famous pal is Game Of Thrones and Bodyguard hunk Richard Madden, below. The pair shared a two-bedroom tenement in Glasgow’s Garnethill after graduating from drama school. He says: “I lived with Richard’s girlfriend at the time, so he moved in for a while, then went to London just as Game Of Thrones kicked off. Richard is massively talented. From the start he was turning stuff down as he said no to an E4 comedy. I was thinking ‘I’d kill for that’. But he always had this amazing foresight of going for bigger and better. But I loved the look on his face when he won at the Golden Globe this year — it was as if he couldn’t believe he was there. He’s the biggest thing from Scotland since Ewan McGregor and James McAvoy.” However Gary’s own career is far from being six feet under as he’s currently back in Scotland filming a major TV series this summer, which has forced him to cancel his stint at this year’s Edinburgh Festival. Single Gary says: “I’ve had to pull out of the Fringe, but everyone who has bought tickets will get a full refund. It clashed with my filming schedule. I’m sworn to secrecy about what it is, but it is funny that I move to London and my first big job is back home.” And he joked: “So I’m not dying on my a**e just yet.” matt.bendoris@the-sun.co.uk [bc_video video_id=”6061585999001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”BBC and ITV unveil plans for BritBox streaming service to challenge Netflix and Amazon”] We pay for your stories and videos!
