Mcgann: 'Drunk Students Quote Withnail Every Year'
British actor PAUL MCGANN is reminded of his signature role in WITHNAIL AND I at the start of each academic year, because drunk university students flock to his house and shout out his character's lines. The 46-year-old made his movie debut as MARWOOD in the 1987 cult classic. MCGann now lives in Bristol, England and still has the movie quoted at him nearly 20 years later, especially each September, when new students arrive in the city. He says, "The new student intake has just come in, and they've drunk their first grant cheque and seen Withnail And I... and I know they've seen it. They usually holler across the street. "The other day, some kid had chalked on the pavement outside my house, 'Perfumed Ponce', with an arrow pointing to my front door."
