When Saturday Comes

Recommended Posts

It was badly acted, no Sheffield-er had an accent that most of those actors spoke

Sean Bean was too good for the movie, he shone in it and he got to play for Sheff United, a dream of his.

Did anyone know that his girlfriend who spoke Irish badly was Triggers(Fools and horses) daughter??

Enough said!!

Kim St Clair, nee McVeigh, my late partner was a big fan of Sean Bean. She always proudly said that when in their early teens they would knock around Pitsmoor together.  Much to her annoyance we would always smile and take it with a pinch of salt. Though, who knows?  W/E.

Wow that is interesting, she wouldn't say it if it wasn't true would she?

I would love to meet Sean Bean, he is such an amazing actor and he was fantastic in his latest role in Broken(See my link)

Has anyone met him?

Kim was not someone who would make up stories.  I will get in touch with her siblings and see what they have to say. I think most of us are guilty of not asking too many questions at the time, only to regret it later. W/E.

I dont think she was in this film, the accent spoiled her.

I think we are all guilty of that, I wished I had listened more to my Granddad when he spoke of the war and listened more to my parents.

They were interesting people and if I could pass on any words of Wisdom to the young of today, it would be to listen to the old stories, you can learn a lot from them and they are worth listening to. You dont want to regret not taking an interest.

I would be interested to hear what Kim's relatives say W/E. thanks/

It turns out that Kim moved away from Pitsmoor in her early teens. It was very probably a friendship were everyone hung around together. Just like we all did in those far off days. W/E.

My dad was working at Bramall Lane when the filming took place (he's in there in a couple of places) and got to know the location manager for the film very well. So much so, their house was used as Pete Postlethwaite's (whatever his character was called) house. One of the other scenes was on their road as well (Backmoor Road) and I don't think anyone has mentioned the John O' Gaunt pub at Hemsworth terminal was used for the pub scenes.

We were there for the filming, stood behind the camera for each of the few shots that were made there as Sean Bean's character turned up to speak to him. Afterwards, they went down to the Nailmakers and we sat with Melanie Hill, Sean Bean and Pete Postlethwaite while they recounted stories of filming Sharpe and other stories I can't remember. In hindsight maybe we should have taken a few photos.

On an another positive note, the set workers fixed a door my mum had been banging on at my dad to get fixed for ages!
