with my son, Alex, in London for several days, i now have the time to spend on his computer - it's the only one in the apartment.

so, how about a game for the New Year? one of those six degrees of separation- with Paul, of course. link any actor to Paul within six connections. (this may not be easy since many of us are unfamiliar with so many British actors, but it will give us a chance to discover them.) at first, we can work with the US and most famous/popular British actors

if i may start:

Alfred Hitchock

OK, Pipi, I'm game. Smile

Michael Redgrave was in Alfred Hitchcock's 1938 film 'The Lady Vanishes'.

The 1984 London revival of Redgrave's play The Aspern Papers featured his daughter Vanessa Redgrave.

Vanessa Redgrave and Richard Harris starred in Camelot (1967).

Richard Harris and Lynn Redgrave were both in My Kingdom (2001).

And Paul was in My Kingdom, too.

Well, not exactly six degrees.

Happy New Year, everyone!!

XOXO,
Estelle

Great game idea, Pipi Smile

Hmmm...just two degrees of separation, eh?

OK, I think I've got it.

-Paul starred in "Paper Mask" (1990-91?).

1. Barbara Leigh-Hunt played the role of Celia Mumford, the senior Dr. Mumford's kind wife who died in the emergency room in "Paper Mask".

2. Barbara Leigh-Hunt played the role of Brenda Blaney, a strangler's victim in Alfred Hitchcock's "Frenzy" (1972).

-Ta-dah! 2 degrees of separation. Very Happy

Pipi, was there a more obvious answer because this was a little bit hard! Shocked I thought you'd start us off nice and easy with someone like oh, Harrison Ford, perhaps. But d'you know, I had to bust out the Google search for this one! Laughing

This is fun so let's keep it going, guys. Smile

I get to call out the next actor, right?
How about Paul's fellow RADA alumni and one of my top favorites, Matthew MacFadyen.

I think I can do this one. Two degrees of separation, right? Hmm, how about...

Matthew MacFadyen played Mr. Darcy in the 2005 "Pride and Prejudice," in which Kelly Reilly played Caroline Bingley.
Kelly Reilly played Mary Gerrard in "Poirot: Sad Cypress," in which Paul played Dr. Peter Lord. Very Happy

Ok, for the next actor I choose one of my personal favorites, Ralph Fiennes.

Ralph played Lord Voldemort in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, in which Timothy Spall played Peter Pettigrew.

Timothy Spall played Mr. Venus in Our Mutual Friend in which Paul played Eugene Wrayburn.

For the next actor, how about David Tennant?

-Daniel Day-Lewis was in "The Age of Innocence" with Richard E. Grant

-REG was in this little cult movie with Paul 20+ years ago, umm...what was it called again?...Oh yeah, "Withnail and Me"! Yup, that's it.

I just want to clarify that we have up to six connections, right? Confused

So now, may I present to you, Mr. Six°-of-Separation-Game himself...Kevin Bacon! *applause*

for Kevin:

The Big Picture (1989) with Jennifer Jason Leigh who played with Daphne Ashbrook in The Love Letter (1998), OR Lover Boy (2005) with Campbell Scott who also played in The Love Letter. (watch this made for TV movie on YT-excellent) Then of course, Daphne with the Doctor. (3 degrees)

for the Hitchcock link, the Frenzy link is correct, but I was thinking of the male lead, Jon Finch, who played with Paul in Streets of Yesterday.

supposedly, one can link many actors to most other actors (through films) within six degrees (of separation). in this game, [/i]the weakest link wins.

Another 3-link to Kevin:

-Kevin was in "Frost/Nixon" with Matthew MacFadyen
-Matthew was in "Death at a Funeral" with his RL wife Keeley Hawes
-Keeley was in OMF w/ Paul.

Let's try, Colin Farrell
