favorite actress? actor?
« on: August 24, 2012, 08:52:51 PM »

  Hands down, my favorite is Meryl Streep. I'm pretty undecided about an actor... how about you?

Wow, tough! But I decided to make it easier on myself by going for the Australian connection, so:

Cate Blanchett
Geoffrey Rush

and may I make honourable mentions of the late, great Leo McKern also (best) known as Rumpole of the Bailey and Errol Flynn because he was born in my favourite place (Hobart, Tasmania) and watched films at my favourite cinema (State Cinema, North Hobart). Well, he probably did  :D

Oh, oh, oh!  Sean Connery can be my honorable mention since he says he is retired anyway.  Then I can have Johnny Depp for my favorite actor -- he was born in my state of Kentucky!

Now I am thinking of the ones we have not mentioned.  Michael Caine, for instance, is an all-time favorite of mine.  As for younger men, I like Joaquin Phoenix.  Tommy Lee Jones, Richard Gere, and Christian Bale rarely disappoint me.

But I will take Daniel Day-Lewis in Last of the Mohicans any day, for the most romantic scene in any movie...♥

Let me think. I may be the younger ones on this board so here goes:

Cate Blanchette
John Cusack (for comedies)
Helen Mirren and Judy Dench
Judy Davis
Richard E. Grant

Not many US actors I am afraid. They are either UK or Australian.

There is more just give me time to look everyone up.

Although I havent much time to see all there movies I like what I have seen so far. I have to go online or netflix because I do not see to much of them in the US mainstream theaters right now. Most is stupid computerized trash for kids.
