CIARAN HINDS is the actor of the week.  I really can’t think of him right now as anyone bad but I like him and so I can break my own rule about posting just bad boys here on Saturdays.   The first thing I remember seeing him in was Excalibur back in the dark ages when I was in college.   He is one of those actors that make you say, “oh yeah, that’s that guy. ”

  He was  Captain Wentworth in the 1995 version of Persuasion.  He was recently in a movie called Mrs Pettigrew Lives for a Day.   An absolute treat of a movie.  I bought several copies for Christmas gifts in 2008.  He was a ladies lingerie designer and he was just wonderful.  He had the best line of the movie when Mrs. Pettigrew asked him if he had been looking for her all night, he said, “I’ve been looking for you all my life.”   Shivers, indeed. Anyway, if you  haven’t seen it, rent it, buy it, steal it but WATCH it.

  1. Oh, he’s lovely! He was great, and very out of his normal character, in Munich with Eric Bana. Two good reasons to watch it!
