News at Eleven: "I didn't know the difference between working class

and other classes until I was in this scene, and all of a sudden I was like a 'raw talent', and 'gritty', and 'urban'," he [Colm Keegan] says, laughing again. "You mean I'm poor? That's really what that's all about. And 'raw talent' means uneducated. If I'd got an education, I'd be a 'polished talent'."

Is he concerned about being typecast as a working-class writer?
