Bruce Robinson was born in Broadstairs in Kent. He is an English director, screenwriter, novelist and actor. He is arguably most famous for writing and directing the cult classic Withnail and I, a film with comic and tragic elements set in London in the 1960s, which drew on his experiences as 'a chronic alcoholic and resting actor, living in squalor' in Camden Town. As an actor, he has worked with Franco Zeffirelli, Ken Russell and François Truffaut. His first film role was as Benvolio in Franco Zeffirelli's film adaptation of Romeo and Juliet. In 2012, Robinson's comic novella Paranoia in the Launderette was substantially filled out and adapted for the screen as A Fantastic Fear of Everything starring Simon Pegg. Recently, Robinson has completed a screenplay for his novel The Peculiar Memories of Thomas Penman and a book on Jack the Ripper which has yet to be published. Robinson is also a successful author. His first published work was the semi-autobiographical novel, The Peculiar Memories of Thomas Penman in 1998.
