And I was good at getting away with pranks like that.

To this day I have no idea how I managed to pass my 11-plus to go to the Royal Grammar School in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.

That was the only exam I ever passed with flying colours - after that, I scraped through a handful of GCSE's and failed all my A-levels.

I was given a lot of homework, so I dropped football and carried on with rugby.

I took eight GCSE's but only got four, and they were all grade C.

Even though my friends were academic, I knew that they would have preferred to be sporty like me - and I thrived on that.

If I was involved in a great win for the school rugby team at the weekend, on the Monday in assembly the head teacher would give the result and say '...thanks to a great try by Matt Dawson'.

Il a ensuite été à l'affiche de la trilogie Ocean's (Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve, Ocean's Thirteen) et de la série de film Jason Bourne (La Mémoire dans la peau, La Mort dans la peau, La Vengeance dans la peau et Jason Bourne).

Il est également apparu dans des longs-métrages comme Syriana, Les Infiltrés.

He was a real ally, even when I got into a fight with one of the guys from my rugby team because he started kissing my girlfriend.
