7. He is humble and gives credit to those who have helped him
One personality trait I have observed about Jason is that he is also quick to compliment others. In the rare interviews he has given, he does not tend to talk about his own skills but attributes his shows to those of whom he worked with.
For example, if he is discussing Only Fools and Horses, he will credit the writing of John Sullivan, and the wonderful cast around him. He appreciates that they were all vital in the success of the classic sitcom, despite him being the lead and most popular character.
Much of Jason’s acting education came from his great friend Ronnie Barker and he is forever thankful for his help. “When I started working with Ronnie Barker (he first appeared in Hark At Barker in 1969) he gave me a lot of confidence. He told me I had good comic timing. I was good at falling over. He liked that. And he took me under his wing. I listened, I learned and I worked and worked and worked.”
It is fantastic that Jason is so humble and grateful of his friends and colleagues. A true gentlemen.
