ABOUT JOE WELLS
Long-time classic car enthusiast and club rally driver of some forty five or more years ago, it seems like only yesterday to me! Happy days when the only way round a corner was on opposite lock in my Escort Mexico, no wonder they call them the good old days. Since my move to the countryside my classic car collection has swelled the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage.
AN ACTOR'S LIFE
I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent. Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work. I was surprised this year when I renewed my Equity Card to find I had become a Long Service Member, my how time flies.
JOE WELLS PUBLICATIONS.
DULCE ET DECORUM EST PRO PATRIA MORI.
A touching glimpse into the experiences of the soldiers of the first world war. This series of letters from the front powerfully evokes the horrors and emotions of the men who fought and died on the battlefield, focusing on Wilfred Owen’s eternal question, is dying for your country an honour or a curse?
Published work includes The Plays Wot I Wrote, the title of which is a small homage to Eric Morecambe and The Battle of Barking Creek which tells the true story of a friendly fire incident which took place on day three of World War Two which resulted in the death of one of our fighter pilots. I am currently working on a series of children’s books soon to be published.
