John Challis - Being Boycee in Tenbury

Local actor John Challis was signing copies of his autobiography "Being Boycie" at Books Books Books today.  If you missed it, there are a few additional signed copies for sale.

John is best known for his portrayal of Boycie the the dodgy car dealer from Only Fools And Horses and the spin off series, The Green Green Grass.

The book charts his early years as the son of a cautious and pedantic man from the Admiralty and a rather more flamboyant mother.

His early career included a spell working at an Estate Agent and as a Deliver Van Driver, before moving into acting with a touring "rep" company. In the 60's he played in many of the hit TV series such as Z Cars & Coronation Street, but it wasn't until after nearly 25 years in the business that he became an "overnight success" in Only Fools & Horses.
