Who are yours? Say you had 10 people to put down as the ones you really look up to in life, and admire-who would they be?

Only well known ones, cos everyone'd probably put a relative of some sort, so celebrity icons. In whatever order you see fit I suppose.

I don't quite know mine at the moment.

Hmmmmmmmm, probably something along the lines of:

George Orwell
Russell T Davies
Dennis Potter
Sydney Newman
Nigel Kneale
Peter Flannery
HG Wells
Michael Wearing
Rudolph Cartier
Paul Abbott

Nearly all writers, predictably enough! The exceptions being Newman and Wearing (who were/are television producers) and Cartier (who was a director).

I don't have any celebrity heroes at all - there are some I can appreciate because of their talent, but not heroes.

Real heroes are the ordinary people who do the extraordinary without thought for their own safety, for reward or gain.

Richard Pryor: The funniest man on the planet

- Richard Pryor is brilliant. Its such a shame to see the way that his health has declined.

I don't really like or admire any people at all. Most of them are quite annoying I must say.

But since so many people mentioned some dude named 'Michael' Schumacher, I'll add my vote for...

Joel Schumacher! World-class director extraordinaire. What he did with 'The Lost Boys' can be described as nothing less than magic, and his screenplay for 'Car Wash' is really the mold by which all others compare since 1976.

Sid Vicious - he had courage to say what was in his mind
Freddie Mercury - he knew he had to die and he didn't complane - instead he made a goodbye video for fans
John Lennon - just amazing person. If all people were like him, there'd be peace
Astrid Lindgren - same as Lennon - she never grew up. Her books are innocent and sweet! R.I.P.!
Urmas Alender - singer over here, who died in a ship disaster. Just amazing songs with great messages
Homer Simpson - no comments
Sam Becektt (aka Scott Bakula in "Quantum Leap") - he found out how to travel in time :P
