Brit Actors

He's one of the more truly gifted American actors, with a kind of British distinction.


Luce, you are so correct.  I think I could list the great American actors on the back of a stamp.

LOL Aren't you exagerating just a tiny bit?

Well, if I write small, I can fit - Chris Evans, Ryan Gosling and Mark Wahlberg on it.  Now, if I had a bigger stamp.... umm::

I'm saying GREAT, not good.

Now if we talk about the UK'ers, I need a newspaper page.

Who would you put on it?

RA, of course. Colin Firth, Rupert Penry-Jones, but those guys are the older generation. Yes, Richard, too.

The younger ones, now these I'm curious about.
Which ones do you favour?

Just to be clear, the above American actors were not necessarily younger.  I was making no distinction except, currently living.

With that, younger Brits - WHERE TO START

Richard Madden



Prince Charming - Cinderella





Robb Stark - Game of Thrones





Medici - Cosimo de' Medici






The Promise - Freidrich Zeitz  (I've bought this and keep it handy as I think it's a beautiful romantic film) (swoon)







Luce, there shall be others.

He's a really great actor as well as being ridiculously handsome. My favourite of his films is actually Sunshine, a Danny Boyle film. It's sort of sci-fi, then turns into a psychological thriller with a bit of horror

I'll have to find that one.

It also stars Cillian Murphy if that makes it more interesting!  :369:

Now, Luce, I find not all are Brits but at least non-American, but of great interest to me. I judge that by knowing I would watch a film just because that person was in it. That's sort of the bottom line for me.

Matthias Shoenaerts  (Antwerp Belgium)





Haven't found this film yet, but like the eye candy.



A Little Chaos



Suite Francaise



Far From the Madding Crowd

Genie, Genie, if you hadn't fixed my attention on Matthias, I wouldn't have spotted him.
 :fav255: We, Belgians, are so ignorant about our own!

I knew his dad, Julien, who was one of our best acyors on stage ever!
I didn't know Matthias!

My grandson, Nele's youngest, is named after him, or so she tells me.

He's gorgeous, I give you that.

Our Belgian actors have got fantastic training, all of them, at the Teirlinck Institute in Antwerp. It's very famous and you need to pass several exams to get in.

I read somewhere that Matthias was one of their exeptionals!

I could almost stick in here, Kit Harington, but I think his exceptional acting has to mature just a tad more.

I only saw him in Gunpowder and agree with your opinion that he's still too immature.

  • With the Snatch film-maker?s live-action adaptation of the Disney film on its way, what will his ?non-traditional? take on the tale be like? We?ve got a few ideas...[Slow-motion chase through a market scene. Aladdin (Mena Massoud, overdubbed by Jason Statham) is sprinting away from the police.

  • post David Oyelowo: ?We don't give black and brown actors the chance to fail? - 20 October
  • A new BBC documentary explores race and Hollywood in the wake of Moonlight?s Oscar win. The actor, along with other film-makers, asks whether that moment actually made a difference?There?s a mistake. Moonlight. You guys won best picture. This is not a joke. Come up here.? The fiasco of the 2017 Oscars, when retro musical La La Land was initially, erroneously, given the best picture statue, was unfortunate beyond the unbearable cringe of the mix-up itself. The kerfuffle obscured the fact that Barry Jenkins?s coming-of-age tale about a boy growing up gay in Florida had just made history: a film with an all-black cast, with a story not about racism or slavery but simply contemporary black people?s lives, had won the Academy?s top prize.It?s the watershed moment that opens Black Hollywood: ?They?ve Gotta Have Us?, a new documentary series by the artist and photographer Simon Frederick. The three-part oral history of black cinema replays that Academy Awards debacle, then spools back to laud cinema?s original black trailblazers. Moonlight is to some extent presented as the full stop at the end of a story about a fight for representation. So was it a new dawn or is there much more work to do? What happened next?

  • post Assassination Nation review ? social media revenge porn - 19 October
  • Salem witch hysteria gets a Maga makeover in Sam Levinson?s satirical thriller about digital privacy and the patriarchyEvery American presidency gets the extreme horror film that it deserves, and the Maga-era US has now got Assassination Nation, which could as well be called Confrontation Nation or Indignation Nation ? a new spin on the Salem witch hysteria, a full-on splattery meltdown far from Arthur Miller, written and directed by actor-turned-filmmaker Sam Levinson.A mysterious hacker (whose IP address discloses a location in Moscow, of all places) gets access to the internet search histories, digital photos and text conversations of everyone in the respectable American town of Salem ? and proceeds to dump them online, thus revealing how, in 2018, people?s private lives and imaginations have become extensively pornified by the internet.

  • post The Hate U Give's Amandla Stenberg on bringing Black Lives Matter to the box office - 19 October
  • Stenberg is the star of a new adaptation of the YA novel phenomenon. The actor, and the film?s director, discuss cinema?s new generation of resistance
    Any resemblance between The Hate U Give and your average teen movie evaporates about 20 minutes in, when 16-year-old Starr Carter, played by Amandla Stenberg, witnesses a police officer shoot dead her friend Khalil at point-blank range. By this stage, Starr?s father has already given her The Talk, the time-honoured ritual where African-American parents instruct their children how to behave if stopped by the police: be polite, stay calm, put your hands where they can see them. When their car is pulled over, Starr follows the drill. Khalil reaches for a hairbrush. The police officer thinks it?s a gun. That?s all it takes.The Hate U Give is fictional, but barely. To see the stricken expression on Stenberg?s face during the shooting scene is to recall Diamond Reynolds, partner of Philando Castile, who livestreamed the aftermath of Castile?s 2016 police shooting from the passenger seat while he bled to death beside her. The victims? names have almost become a mantra: Castile, Freddie Gray, Oscar Grant, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland ? all young African Americans killed by law enforcement, each an avoidable tragedy.

  • post Tell us: how does it feel to watch a classic film on first release? - 19 October
  • As audio of frenzied audience reactions to the original Halloween has gone viral, we want to hear your stories of seeing defining films at the cinemaThe much-hyped release of the latest Halloween installment (tipped to break records with a $70m opening) has led many to think back to the film that started it all back in 1978.While there have been rankings aplenty, there?s also been a rather fascinating video going viral that gives us an idea of what it would have been like to see the original on the big screen. Audio from the time has been matched with remastered footage and the result is a nifty leap back in time when Michael Myers was still a terrifyingly unknown quantity. Continue reading...
