Actor Richard Griffiths is homesick for Britain, just two months into his run in the Broadway production of Equus.
The star, famous for his role as Uncle Monty in cult movie Withnail + I, is finding the glamour of New York City no substitute for his native London.
And he has completely lost touch with all the gossip and news back home.
He complains, "I've been here since August. I've no idea what's going on. Has the money gone to pieces? I miss home hugely. I can't wait to go back. I miss nice things. Tea... scones."
The only consolation for Griffiths is that the Big Apple's current cold spell makes it feel almost like England.
He adds: "At least the weather's the same."
