Movember Snapshot: 10 British Actors Sporting Moustaches

It’s November and you know what that means: men donning moustaches worldwide in the name of prostate cancer awareness. While some of our favorite Brits might be sprouting whiskers in support of the cause, warming their upper lip for a role, or wearing a lip wig as a fashion statement, it’s a bit of fun to take a […]

Dame Maggie Smith, John Barrowman and Daniel Day Lewis

Daniel Day-Lewis, Maggie Smith and John Barrowman Honored by the Queen

The Queen’s Birthday Honours List was announced yesterday, and it seems we have a new theatrical sir to add to an already enormously impressive list. Daniel Day-Lewis is to receive a knighthood, putting the three-time Oscar winner on a par with Sirs Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen and Kenneth Branagh. He is one of 1,149 people […]

Sir Derek Jacobi

Derek Jacobi Was Nearly Hannibal Lecter

There’s a great alternate history of Hollywood to be written, in which the actors that just missed out on getting certain iconic screen roles are shown having got the part.

James Bond And The Argonauts: The 2013 BAFTAs

I’m pretty sure if a well-known British actor had tried his hand at directing, delivered a well-liked and unthodox thriller, starring himself, then taken it to an awards ceremony in America and walked off with two of the largest awards of the night, we’d be throwing around words like “invasion” and “landslide,” so in the […]

The Brits have made an early showing at the 70th Annual Golden Globes with Dame Maggie Smith winning Best Supporting Actress for her performance in BBC’s Downton Abbey. Let’s do some Brit-spotting at the Globes! Unfortunately, BBC America’s The Hour was passed up for Best Mini-Series or TV Movie. But, there’s no time to be […]


Daniel Day-Lewis: ‘Downton Abbey’ is ‘Why I Left England’

Nearly eight million viewers tuned into PBS on Sunday night to see the premiere of Downton Abbey’s third season, but Oscar nominee Daniel Day-Lewis wasn’t one of them.
