This week theme is Favourite Actor. The lovely Hannah has even admitted herself that this is going to be a difficult task.
There are many an actor that I admire the work of , Colin Firth(maybe just for the totty though, doesn’t matter what role I always see him coming out of the lake in that white shirt yum yum), of course the fabulous Johnny Depp however he only really covers the area of strange and wired, but in that area he is amazing. Ewan Mcgregor is another fantastic actor from Big Fish to Star Wars I always sit back and admire his work unfolding on the screen. Sir Ian Mckellen and Sir Anthony Hopkins are mind-blowing and always have me wanting more.
Now I am torn between 2 and in all seriousness I can not choose so I do both firstly
The amazing Tim Curry and in this picture he is playing my favourite role of his. – Frank-N-Furter. There is something sinister about him. His dead eye stare and bone chilling voice. He is a well rounded actor, known not only for film roles, but voice overs and TV Series and most importantly his stage work.
He is a great example of British acting and there must be something to do with 1946 that produced great British actors because my other choice is also a British actor born in the same year. He is none other than the fabulous Alan Rickman (yes I think I have something for the bad guy) again in this photo it is my favourite role of him – Robin Hood and the Prince of
Thieves – well lets face it someone had to make up for Kevin Costner’s ham acting! He has had roles in some of the most prestigious film for the past 3 decades(wow seems wired typing that) From playing Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films to more recently the blue caterpillar in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.
I love to praise British Actor, we have produced some of the most amazing and talented people within their field. They tend to be classically trained and well versed in Shakespeare. So there are my choices however it was not easy to choose even those 2 as to me so many people in this field deserve more credit than what they get.
Why don’t you pop over to Hannah’s site and check out who everyone loves, then tell us your choices!
