To gales of hilarity, he told of the difficulties of playing the Squid Pirate, Davy Jones, in the Pirates of the Caribbean, dressed in motion capture "pyjamas". Subjects ranged from the serious aspects of acting, to funny insights into his industry. Interviewed afterwards the audience feedback was sensational. Prior to his appearance, the audience were entertained by Eloise Lyons and Libby Wood, keyboard and vocals, and Karina Natkinis, keyboard, students from Felpham Community College.
