Was Boy George in that Video?  

My boyfriend is convinced that Boy George was in Ashes to Ashes video because apparently a documentary he saw said it to be true. I said that they didn't do their research properly because the only real name in the video other than Bowie was Steve Strange. But he just won't believe me. Am I wrong?

George was a massive Bowie fan as evidenced here but he wasn't in the video.

The confusion is probably because a character playing Boy George recently popped up in the Ashes to Ashes BBC series (as a cloakroom attendant at The Blitz nightclub - the position & place he worked in 1981). In that same episode, Steve Strange makes an appearance and sings 'Fade to Grey'.

No this argument we've been having has been going on way before the Ashes To Ashes tv program....but thanks for confirming he wasn't in it. :)

Also, Visage was a brilliant band new [re: Chinchilla]  

If I remember correctly, both Boy George and Steve Strange auditioned for a part in the Ashes to Ashes vid but only Strange got in. So it wouldn't be very difficult for someone to get their wires crossed in this.
