My school helped shape key Bodyguard character…

This is about The Bodyguard and the school I attended…

Bowman, born in Dundee, told how he drew on his experience at Dollar Academy, near Stirling, to find the character. “I went to a boarding school in Scotland,” he said, “which are brutal places with children being sent away at a very young age. I think that creates an atmosphere that is very particular to the English ruling class. It creates the type of person who can be cold and quite detached, and lacking in empathy.”

I was a day pupil.
