Bob Hoskins tribute:
According to Hoskins' obituary on BBC News, Hoskins "became an actor by accident. Waiting for a friend in the bar of an amateur theatre in north London in 1966, he was handed a script and asked to read for a part. The audition was a successful one and led to him working for five years in repertory theatre, where his roles ranged from Shakespeare to circus fire-eater."
After a long career in theatre, Hoskins would go on to become an internationally known film star.
