Sir Sean Connery the legendary James Bond actor and Oscar winner has sadly passed away at the age of 90. The first to take on the James Bond and he was iconic doing that. His Oscar win came for The Untouchables and he starred in many big hitting films.
Patrick Stewart the legend that is turns 80 years old today! Certainly does not look it at all, here’s to many more years of films and theatre! I was honoured to see him on stage in No Man’s Land a few years and go and see him exit the stage door.
This year the Best Supporting Actor category is filled with familiar faces! Which is not a bad thing at all and considering all of the nominees are over 50 showing that men are getting good roles much older now as well. Anthony Hopkins 82, Al Pacino 79, Joe Pesci 77, Tom Hanks 63 and Brad Pitt 56! Now isn’t that very impressive!
Manu Bennett is well known for tv shows such as Arrow, The Shannara Chronicles and Spartacus. He also had a starring role in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, even though he was playing a CGI character!
Ben Barnes is part of Marvel’s The Punisher and quite possibly still well known for his role as Prince Caspian in The Chronicle of Narnia films. Personally he has a cult status between myself and friends for Dorian Gray, which is now ten years old!
A true acting legend and quite frankly incredible that Showmasters were able to get him to attend the London event! Apocalypse Now, The Departed, The American President, Wall Street, The West Wing and so many more!
The legend that is actor/director Clint Eastwood turns 89 years old today! He stars in some of my all time favourite films, Million Dollar Baby and The Bridges of Madison County.
