‘She was teaching an accent session with a bunch of actors, and I thought she had the most wonderful voice and huge, sort of monkey eyes. She seemed fairly frenetic.

‘I thought that she was really cute and all that. It was December 1982.

Speaking in an interview with The Independent, Lui ha spiegato: ‘I’d never really thought about getting married, didn’t think it was necessary.

‘Joan had been married, and she had staunchly said to me that she didn’t want to get married again, and so we’d never talked about it.

It wasn’t until the couple spent six weeks apart when Richard returned to his family home in southern Africa for a Christmas break that he realised marriage was the ultimate commitment.

The star proposed immediately upon his return and Joan happily accepted, with the couple going on to set up home together in Richmond, a sud-ovest di Londra.
