Appearances can be deceptive. Meet Charles "Chick" Allen, Chief Executive of the Clanranald Trust for Scotland. You may recognise Chick as the barbarian holding the head of the Roman soldier in the opening scene of the film Gladiator. He is a black belt in karate, master swordsman and a very fine piper. Chick is in demand worldwide to choreograph epic battle scenes for Hollywood movies and has trained many a superstar in the use of a broadsword. He asked me to take a few portraits for his agent. Well what was I supposed to say? Only joking - he wouldn't hurt a fly!
