|Stephen Triffit as Frank Sinatra|
Podcast: Edward Seckerson talks to Rat Pack star Stephen Triffitt
Date: 2 November 2012
In this latest series of 'live and uncut' interviews, Edward Seckerson talks to Stephen Triffitt, best known for his acclaimed performances as Frank Sinatra.
Seckerson says: "Triffitt leaves his alter ego, Francis Albert Sinatra, under wraps for a few hours and shares the amazing story of how the two of them became one. From The Rat Pack to his own solo tribute shows this is an amazing story of how an Englishman assumed the performing persona of an American icon. It’s the story of a little boy who dreamed of being an actor and grew up to be Frank.
"From Karaoke and Stars in Their Eyes to the Sands Casino Hotel in Atlantic City the journey has been stranger than fiction. In this candid 'Live & Uncut' podcast Stephen talks about becoming the Swing master - the sound, the phrasing, the physical and vocal mannerisms, even the life style. And once Frank, it seems, always Frank - even when Stephen would rather be someone else. Or just himself."
