Brian Cox reveals why he's never been happier - posted on Saturday, August 13 2005
Published August 14, 2005 in SUNDAY MAIL at sundaymail.co.uk: ONLY LOVE CAN BEAT MY BLUES: BRIAN COX REVEALS WHY HE'S NEVER BEEN HAPPIER. Exclusive By Steve Hendry. "Brian Cox had not heard of cycling champ Graeme Obree before agreeing to star in a movie based on his life. But the Hollywood heavyweight yesterday revealed how he felt drawn to the turbulent story of the gifted athlete driven to the edge of suicide by crippling depression. Brian, 59, could only imagine the severe manic depression which plagued the cyclist during his glittering career. Obree fought to beat his demons after breaking the world hour record in 1993 on a self-designed bike made from scrap. The Dundee-born actor never suffered the same black depression but admits that he could understand the despair that dogged the cycling champion. He said: 'I didn't know anything about Graeme Obree until I read the script. He was quite a revelation to me. 'I play a minister who recognises that the man is an accident waiting to happen because of his bipolar state and it has to be attended to. 'But the pertinence of the story is that it doesn't matter how successful you are or how good you are at what you are doing - shadows have to be dealt with. 'I've never been clinically depressed but I remember years ago when I was supposedly doing fantastically well playing King Lear. I wasn't in a very good state of mind at that time on either an emotional or personal level. 'I found something missing in my life which was to do with some other kind of satisfaction beyond work.' Brian's family helped him through and made him realise there is more to life than work - and have made him happier than he has ever been." - view complete article at www.sundaymail.co.uk
