In the history of Grange Hill there have been many school bullies, but none made quite the same impact as the legendary Gripper Stebson. To say he wasn’t very nice is an understatement; whether he was racially abusing fellow pupils, stealing dinner money or making poor Roland ‘Guts’ Browning roll down the corridor, Gripper Stebson did it all!
Fortunately Mark Savage who played Gripper is a very different character; he talks exclusively to Grange Hill Gold in a brand new interview here.
Huge thanks to Mark Savage for taking part in the interview. Mark is still acting and appears in The Squeaky Clean at the New Wimbledon Studio Theatre from 3-21st September. Tickets are available here.
