    Hi all,

    Thankyou for responding with such lively enthusiasm to the threads I began last week.

    Here's a 'new one' - Which real-life inspiration of yours would you like to play on stage or film?

    Mine would be Winston Churchill...

    Princess Soraya of Iran,her story is one of the sadest...

    She died in Paris heartbroken and totally alone at the age of 69.

    after being dicarded by her former husband the Shah,coz she couln't conceive,she left him and lived in Europe,trying to make people feel better with what little money she had left...while she never recovered from her broken heart.

    She got the name of"the princess with sad eyes"

    sniff!

    Funny you should mention that, Ray. I'd love to have played him in 24 Hr Party People - Have you got his widow's biography of him? "Touching From A Distance". I worked with Sean Harris In SEE NO EVIL who played him in 24 HR PP- (very well too I thought). "Atmosphere" is a gorgeous, haunting song...

    Isn't it Jude Law who's supposed to have nabbed it in the new biopic? Seems very bizarre if so........

    I'd also quite like to play Brian Epstein or Kit Lambert (the Mgr of THE WHO)...

    It would have to be Miss Piggy for me!! So much glamour and pizazz and she has aged wonderfully!She also sets a great example of how to keep a relationship strong and healthy - despite the terrible pressures of fame!

    Audrey Hepburn! I know I look nothing like her but she has been an idol of mine for so many years for many reasons. Other than her it would have to be Robin Williams for always making me laugh or Will Smith for making me wish I was a great looking actor with a fantastic personality. Then don't get me started on Steve McQueen....hell, I REALLY should have been born a man...whole new discussion here folks!!!

    Hope everyone is now coping with the sweltering heat - read 36 in my car five minutes ago!! Dont'cha just love the Summer!!

    parents always.........

    Bette Davis, she played a variety of difficult roles and her battles with the top guys at the industry were legendary, also her career spanned 60 years! She was a strong, fiesty and liberated woman, I think that is inspiration enough for any actress.

    Bette Davis - Yes, I can see why she is still so popular. Judy Garland still has a huge sway for similar reasons it seems.

    Hey, Sasha, if Frances De La Tour can play 'Hamlet' why shouldnt you play STEVE MCQUEEN?

    Nothing wrong with a good dose of Surrealism in Art...

    I suppose I'm fortunate. In my home office here where I do my day job, I'm actually in my underwear. How fortunate for all of you too, that I'm not in your offices!

    Nice gentle breeze blowing through my window (toward me, not from me, I hasten to add)
