Clare Grogan on 80s music bash Sandfest: 'It’s going to be like a bizarre school reunion' | HeraldScotland

Clare Grogan on 80s music bash Sandfest: 'It’s going to be like a bizarre school reunion' | HeraldScotland: "Ask Clare Grogan if she can choose between acting and singing and her response is emphatic. “Absolutely not. It’s all swings and roundabouts. I go through phases where I will do a lot of music, but then there will be a period where I am doing radio or TV work. When I was younger I wasn’t geared more towards acting or singing: I just wanted to perform.”

 Her platform to perform came when Grogan was fresh out of Notre Dame High School for Girls in Glasgow, winning the part of Susan in Gregory’s Girl in the same year that her band Altered Images were signed to Epic Records.

 “I call it my double whammy. I think when you are young you almost accept extraordinary things. You think: ‘Yes, I did quite fancy being a film star and the lead singer in a successful band’. It is only years later that I look back on it and actually realise that it was remarkable.”"
