"You can't call it adventure unless it's tinged with danger. The greatest danger in life, though is not taking the adventure at all. To have the objective of a life of ease is death. I think we've all got to go after our own Everest."
- Brian Blessed
By his own admission he has no fears at all, he thinks Donald Trump is a 'fart', the person he admires most in the world is the Dalai Lama, he's been to Everest three times, he is the oldest man to reach the North Pole, he survived a plane crash in Venezuela, holds a 3rd dan in Judo, thinks he looks like a cross between King Kong and a yeti, has completed cosmonaut training in Russia, adores his wife and his seven dogs, loves to frighten bullies and he worked as an undertakers assistant at the age of 15. Oh, and his own favourite sayings are 'Follow your dream' and the much overused (by his own admission) 'Don't let the bastards grind you down!' Yes, there is much that people don't know about Brian Blessed OBE and these facts, simply astounding to most of us, are but a small part of Brian's life.
Most people think of Brian Blessed and immediately think of the immortal words from Flash Gordon "Gordon's Alive!", of his fantastic beard and his booming voice, but Brian is so much more than just an actor, he is an adventurer, a husband, a father, dog lover, an explorer, and adventurer. He stared his adventures at an older age than many might do, making his first assault on Everest at age 53. 'I became a real explorer in my old age, you might say. It’s not how old you are, it’s how you are old.'
