Michael York, actor

As the world goes gaga over La La Land, the veteran British actor Michael York talks about the making of Bob Fosse’s Cabaret with Liza Minnelli. The groundbreaking and Oscar winning musical recently marked its 50th anniversary.
In a wide-ranging interview we chat (with Rhod Sharp on BBC Radio 5 Live) about York's hugely successful career, the upcoming Academy Awards, Hollywood life, and his recent struggles with a little-known medical condition called amyloidosis.
"It is my new role and probably the best role I've ever had, to raise awareness for this rare disease," he tells us.
