COMMENT.

BY CLEMMIE MOODIE, ASSOCIATE FEATURES EDITOR AS the journalist who knew him best, I can tell you that, like so many of the great stars, Uggie had an ego.

It took weeks of wrangling before I was granted an audience. And Uggie - well, maybe his owner - demanded a not-insignificant fee. But then, would Meryl Streep work for free? No, she would not. Yet beneath the ruthless businessman exterior, Uggie was wonderful: charming, well-mannered, intelligent, affectionate, and ruggedly handsome. His range of tricks knew no bounds. He revolutionised canine acting.

To this day, he remains one of my favourite interviewees of all time. Actually, no, Uggie was undoubtedly my favourite.
