‘A horse! A horse! My kingdom for a horse!’
Could it be Olivier? Gielgud maybe? Or even Richard III? No, i’ faith.
’Tis young Ronald Leagas, verily, in cake decoration form.
For it was the bold idea of Chloe March, secretary to Leagas Shafron’s
creative supremo, Steve Grime, to bake a cake by way of celebration for
Ronald’s 50th birthday last week.
And as her inspiration, she used the photo of Ron treading the boards
that we published several months ago (Campaign, 24 November 1995).
The Diary would like to seize this opportunity to run yet another silly
picture of Ronald (as he is known in thespian circles) in the general
spirit of causing maximum embarrassment as often and as unnecessarily as
Readers may like to keep to themselves their views on the likeness
between the cakey Ron and the man himself, but Chloe has a bulging order
book with clients such as Maurice Saatchi and Sting queueing up for her
Talented people, these adfolk - acting, cake-making, whatever next? The
Diary would like to hear from anyone else who has an interesting life
outside of advertising, so it may poke fun accordingly.
