In The Guardian, Rushmore star Olivia Williams talks motherhood and the positive aspects of being an aging actress: “A lot of acting is feeling that you are interesting enough to take up people’s time.

Kevin Wicks founded BBCAmerica.com's Anglophenia blog back in 2005 and has been translating British culture for an American audience ever since. While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
