Brian Blessed: Caesar my best role

Knutsford Guardian: Brian Blessed played Augustus Caesar in I, Claudius Brian Blessed played Augustus Caesar in I, Claudius

Brian Blessed might be best known as Vultan in Flash Gordon - but he'd rather be remembered for another role.

The actor and adventurer, who voices the character of Eduardo Enormomonster in new Disney Junior animation Henry Hugglemonster, is famous for his roles in Z Cars, I, Claudius and Flash Gordon.

But asked which part he'd like to be remembered for, Brian said: "The problem is, I'm so popular throughout the world as Vultan in Flash Gordon, and I do adore that, but it's not my best performance.

"I think that would be Augustus Caesar in I, Claudius."

He added: "I got about seven different awards for it. That was the most demanding one."

:: Henry Hugglemonster airs on Disney Junior at 5.50pm every Friday
