1816This is Mark Stephens CBE, a distinguished lawyer who, among other things, has represented the Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. Of his SOTM, he says in his audio clip that when “in the process of expecting our first child, my father said this to me. And I’ve tried”.
The picture in the background is of Mark (on the left) and was painted by his father. It shows him “sitting in a Majorcan hotel, watching Mission Impossible in Spanish as an 11-year old boy, next to the hotel owner”. Taken in Great Portland Street, London, UK.
