|As Sebastian Flyte from Brideshead Revisited (1981)|
And here's the official kick-off for my Valentine's Month Blog Hop for Anthony Andrews!
Ordinarily, I don't like to look up information on the actors I adore. You never know what you might find, but I made an exception for Anthony Andrews because I feel that nothing will change my opinion of him. He's not perfect and I can't expect that of him. And delving a little bit into his personal life won't do me any harm.
Keep going into the post to see more!
Since I'll be starting the Blog Hop with his Ivanhoe from 1982, I figured it would be loads of fun to share this article that I found:
With Ivanhoe and Brideshead, Anthony Andrews' Career Is Picking Up
You get delicious information on him as an actor from 1982, back when he was 34-years-old. You might also find out some things that will shock you, like why he chose to play Sebastian Flyte in Brideshead Revisited. I won't go into details on the specifics of that role for this post, but I certainly will once I re-watch and write a post for the film itself. There's a lot of food for thought in Evelyn Waugh's story (one of my favs), and I intend to contemplate it from numerous angles.
I'm even going to try my hand at The Pallisers from 1974! He would have been . . . let's see, 26 at the time. I've never seen him that young!
Remember, if you post anything about Anthony this month, feel free to share it on my Linky down below! :)
