Rami Malek for Bohemian Rhapsody
Mahershala Ali in Green Book
Christian Bale is quite possibly one of the greatest British actors of all time. Causing chaos at the Golden Globes when some people didn’t realise that he is Welsh! I found that very amusing but also confirmation that he is therefore a truly outstanding actor! He has been nominated four times for an Oscar-winning for his supporting role in The Fighter.
He is very well-known for his serious method acting and really becoming the character. This has resulted in serious weight loss and weight gain over the years to achieve a totally different look. Not forgetting his working out to become Batman for Christopher Nolan!
He is certainly one of my favourite actors and here are my choices for his 7 Greatest performances . . . (So far) . . .
A very tough list to put together as it is really hard to narrow it down to 25 performances. I have somehow managed and the order could so easily be interchangeable between different performance types. But here are the 25 male performances that impressed me the most in films from 2018 that I managed to watch over the course of the year.
Take a look at who made the final list . . .
From this day forward the 31st July shall forever be known as Orlando Bloom. That is because I am heading to London to see him for the very first time, making all of my teenage dreams come true! He is in the play Killer Joe in the West End and I am seriously so excited about this, as you will probably already know he was my biggest teenage crush, I have seen all of his films (and TV appearances) and my love for Lord of the Rings is what started it all!
As you are well aware I am a huge fan of going to the Theatre, catching my favourite actors on stage and the occasional stage door visit as well. This year I have managed a lot of touring UK shows, many visits to the West End in London and an incredible trip to New York for some amazing Broadway shows. Nothing better than watching live acting and singing before your eyes in some beautiful Theatres!
This is being celebrated on Twitter and really is fantastic to find amazing posts from performers and shows as well as fans!
Following the heartbreaking news of Carrie Fisher passing away we have been given a double whammy when a day later her mother Debbie Reynolds has also died. If anyone has ever died of a broken heart this certainly has to be it. Such horrible news for the family now having to deal with even more sadness.
Thoughts go out with the family at this truly difficult time.
RIP Debbie Reynolds
