    • John's first job was in the clay mines in his home town of St. Austell, Cornwall at the age of 16, as a holiday job, earning £7.10 a week, which was good money in the late 1950s. He was 26 the last time he worked there. When he was out of work acting he would go and work in the mines. He once said in an interview that his worst job ever was teaching in an inner city London school during the late 60s, early 70s.
