David Steen recalls: “With Terence it was always about perfection. I had previously photographed him when he appeared with Julie Christie in Far from the Madding Crowd. From the brogues to the handkerchief, the posture, the way in which he had to stand forward at an angle, look in the camera and feel good: everything had to be right. When I took this shot at Pinewood Studios he had discovered Buddhism and for religious reasons everything had to be orange. He wore a pale, washed-out orange suit and stood eating a carrot. The irony is the shot wasn’t used in colour.”
