Three things you didn’t know about…

Adrian Bracken is founder of Spanish indie Marbella Productions. Marbella is currently in the process of completing a historical documentary on the life of Brendan Bracken, Winston Churchill's right-hand man (and perhaps a distant relation of the filmmaker).

Adrian Bracken is founder of Spanish indie Marbella Productions. Marbella is currently in the process of completing a historical documentary on the life of Brendan Bracken, Winston Churchill’s right-hand man (and perhaps a distant relation of the filmmaker). Bracken took a few moments to share three things with realscreen that the industry might not generally know about him.

1. I was and still am a working actor. My first TV part was at 16 in a black and white UK TV soap called Crossroads.

2. I ran an electrical engineering business for over 25 years.

3. The word retirement doesn’t exist in my vocabulary!
