  1. Part of me wants to skip this one because I’m not sure I can bear to hear about such heart ache, but the other part of me wants to watch it. As I’ve said before, he was my favorite author as a pre-teen and I’ve read all of his books!

    1. And we do love juicy celebrity lives. It is rarely glitz and glamour privately for them.

    1. Last five years are the height of her career methinks, she wasn't used enough in UK for decades, now she is finally enjoying success. I just hope they won't use her too much. British TV has been very into finding actresses over 40 to lead their projects in recent years, they've even dug out Saskia Reeves recently and put her in some projects LOL Wonder who is next. I was hoping Polly Walker, whom I adore, but she works more in USA these days, sadly. They could dig out Victoria Tennant and Cherie Lunghi too!

  3. I suppose better late than never. It’s good to see more seasoned actresses getting recognition. But I do agree they should pace themselves and only pick exceptional roles so we don’t get burnt out on seeing them constantly in mediocre roles.

    1. Keeley had some roles recently that she shouldn't have picked out if you ask me, but I guess it is hard to say no when you are the star of the moment. It was the same with Colin Morgan and now he is nowhere to be seen, poor sexy munchkin, and then they did it with Aidan Turner too, and with Tom Bateman. They wanted to do it with Richard Madden but he escaped to Hollywood to frolick with young men, which gives me tons of lovely dreams at night.
