Best Of British Biographies – John Hurt

There was a meme I saw recently which said “Which singer can you recognise from the first note?” If you are interested, my thoughts ran to Jon Anderson, Peter Gabriel, and Roger Hodgson.  But then I wondered if there was something similar with actors; are there any actors you can recognise as soon as they […]

Whitney Houston: I want to dance with somebody

Movie Review – I Wanna Dance with Somebody

Prior to this movie what I knew about Whitney Houston was that she sang the national anthem for the 1991 super bowl. It was noteworthy to me because… Wow! She hit it out of the park and then some, and the first Gulf War was beginning and so it made it that much more patriotic. […]

Best Of British Biographies – Judi Dench

I know there are always tales of stage or screen royalty and there are some people who you tend to assume are the rightful occupants of that title. Ian McKellen, Helen Mirren, Maggie Smith, Michael Caine, Anthony Hopkins, and Patrick Stewart are the leading examples of their generation. Amongst them there is one more who, […]

Movie Review – Belfast

Sometimes things things just fall into place in a nicely convenient way. I was part way through writing one of my short biography pieces, this time about Judi Dench. I’d seen quite a few of her films and a number of interviews with her on TV, usually thanks to Graham Norton! However, I hadn’t seen […]

Best Of British Biographies – Leslie Phillips

Yet again I have my rigorously scheduled writing plans thrown to the wind by another death. Believe it or believe it not, I do plan these things! This time it is not such a surprise though. Leslie Phillips CBE was ninety eight years old and had been ill for some time. Perhaps he isn’t as […]

Best Of British Biographies – Emma Thompson

Who knows who she could have been. God, an FBI trainee, a bunny boiler, and, arguably, the world’s most famous flasher. Instead she’s been the Prime Minister, the First Lady, a professor, and a number of queens. “What is the daft old fool rabbiting on about now?” you’re probably wondering. Quite simply, those are some […]

Best Of British Biographies – Robbie Coltrane

In 2006 the Loch Ness monster, Robert Burns, Sean Connery, Robert the Bruce, and William Wallace were placed as the top five in a poll of UK adults looking for the most famous Scot. The person who was placed sixth was Robbie Coltrane. I have only just finished a biographical piece following the death of […]

Best Of British Biographies – Angela Lansbury

Last night I heard the sad news of the passing of Angela Lansbury. As is my habit, I posted something along the lines of “Aww…Angela Lansbury has died” to my FaceBook page. Usually that just means a few people add a “Sad” react emoji and that’s about it. This time, though, there were comments along […]

Best Of British Biographies – Bill Nighy

Ah, Bill Nighy. I’ve used phrases like chameleonic before but Bill Nighy is not quite that sort of actor. That doesn’t mean he isn’t versatile though. He has played a wide range of characters: a formerly addicted pop star, the minister for magic, a Regency gent, the embodiment of the oceanic abyss, a Victorian detective, […]
