The Gambling Man Fan Tributes
4 Elizabeth from Tyneside: I enjoyed this very much. However, I couldn't quite grasp Rory's family set-up - if Lizzie was his Ma, why did he call the other older lady Mum (as did his brother)? Sorry to be dense!!
3 Judy Pembroke from California: OK, I am probably 15 years late, but I thought Rory's transformation from a selfish, greedy kid to someone feeling and loving was quite enduring.
2 gemma from sunderland: well whn erm... tht jenny lass came back from france when he thought she was dead and she appeared from out of the blue with her new hairk was a shock the tension in that scene was tight xxx
1 David from canada: Mr. Green did make me cry when he siad (I never thought) & (do you understand) twice. my heart was broken when he whisper the second (do you understand) and what a power of his acting.
I am so glad that I did not miss him even through it is more than 10 years later.
My highest admiration to Mr. Robson Green!!!!
