Veteran actor Ron Moody is delighted his acting work has slowed down so he can concentrate on his first love - writing. The OLIVER! star was Oscar-nominated for his 1968 role as FAGIN in the classic musical, but he insists penning novels gives him far more satisfaction these days. He says, "I'm writing most of the time. I love getting up in the morning with nothing else to do except write. "I love writing. And making people laugh." Moody is currently starring in another CHARLES DICKENS classic, A CHIRSTMAS CAROL, in Cardiff, Wales. He plays miserly EBENEZER SCROOGE.
