St Andrew's Day dinner Q&A

Ahead of this appearance at this year's St Andrew's Day Dinner, we talked to actor, author and activist Alan Cumming.

The best advice I ever got?
Plug it in, switch it on and read the bloody label.

The worst advice I ever got?
Try to be the same as everybody else.

Don’t underestimate
The power of positive thinking.

My golden rule?
Everything in moderation, including moderation.

My biggest influence?
Vodka.

The smartest business idea I’ve ever had?
The Cumming fragrance line. the soap, Cumming in a bar (still available at alancumming.com) is my favorite ever pun on my name.

My favorite album and why?
The Kick Inside by Kate Bush.  It buoyed me through my teens and re-listening to it is both a fantastical musical pleasure and a massive nostalgia trip.
