Phil Barantini's story is fascinating.
At just 17 years old, he was plucked from obscurity, to star in Sky One's smash hit Dream Team, as Harchester United's striker, Billy O'Neil.
The success of that show led to an audition for Stephen Spielberg's Band Of Brothers - a job that would change Phil's life forever - but in ways you would never expect.
With the world at his feet, Phil got caught up in a cycle of alcohol and substance abuse, that would have disastrous consequences for his acting career, over a 10 year period.
A tragedy? Absolutely NOT - the lessons that decade taught Phil, enabled him to come back to the industry, even stronger than before.
