Matthew Macfadyen in Any Human Heart

You lucky ducks who live across the pond have a definite advantage over those of us here in the States since you get to see the divinely delicious Matthew Macfadyen in his latest project – Any Human Heart – starting this Sunday, November 21. TODAY! Yep, I am a little jealous! Eventually we will get it over here but for now must ease our pain with clips and images. Check your local listings if you are in the UK for when this 4-part adaptation of the novel by William Boyd. Here are some images, a couple of links, and a nice video interview with Matthew on the set. For most of this I must thank my fabulous Scottish pal May who keeps me informed of the latest Matthew happenings!

While I am on the subject of Matthew Macfadyen – a lovely subject indeed – I will also share a few images that surfaced recently as a result of a photo shoot with photographer Chris McAndrews. Again thanks to May for alerting me to these. There is also a nice video montage put together by Fallon6MM on YouTube, that link HERE: Nostalgia

This was taken on October 5, 2010 in the midst of filming for The Three Musketeers, hence the scruffy beard. Still, nice! This will whet the appetite. Lots more in my Portrait Gallery in Matthew’s special album. Enjoy!

And since I am in a very Matthew-mood at the moment and fear there may be new visitors to my website who do not know this brilliant actor beyond his role as Mr. Darcy, here is an essential filmography of his best performances, in my opinion:
Spooks/MI5
Little Dorrit
Pride and Prejudice
Pillars of the Earth
As We Live Now
Death at a Funeral
Perfect Strangers
In My Father’s Den
Frost/Nixon

There are many other projects Matthew has been in, most of which I have seen and can recommend. For a full Filmography of everything he has been in, even small cameos or TV appearances or voice overs, IMDB Matthew Macfadyen lays it out. Most of his work is on DVD and can be attained here in the US or via UK delivery, but not all. It is worth looking for though! Don’t count on me for up-to-the-minute news on Matthew, however. To be well informed of ALL the latest happenings, the Matthew Macfadyen Topix Forum is still the best place on the net. Keep it up, Matthew! Your fans want more!

6 Comments for Matthew Macfadyen in Any Human Heart

  1. Hey Sharon, watch out for the other Mr Darcy (Colin Firth) in the movie "The King's Speech". He plays George VI and Helena Bonham Carter plays Queen Elizabeth. It is thought it may be nominated for an Oscar. I love Colin Firth, he is always watchable. Aren't we lucky to have 2 Mr Darcy's to choose from!

  2. Haha I will keep a look out Sharon! May has certainly peeked our curiosity!
    May I can't imagine Matthew ever giving a bad performance, he just draws me in to each of his characters, he is such an emotionally charged actor! Love all his work!

  3. Ha Ha Sharon! Matthew being Matthew it turned out to be a very polite love scene! Phew! It is a stellar performance by Matthew though and I can't wait for next week to see him in naval uniform!

  4. You put your hands over your face?!?!?!!! Heck, that just makes me want to watch it NOW! And I am not so sure such passionate haste is un-Darcy. LOL! At least not my Darcy. 🙂

    I am looking forward to the series. It sounds quite good, Matthew or not. Maybe we will get lucky, Vee, and catch a snippet on YouTube – preferably the ripping clothes scene. Ha!

  5. Haha you're funny May! Guess I will have to wait until the DVD is out. I loved hearing Matthew's interview!
    Thanks for the great pics and info about the ever gorgeous Matthew Sharon!

  6. Thank you so much for posting all this lovely news about Matthew, Sharon. I watched AHH last night and Matthew was just fabulous in it, very DEBONAIR! I did put my hands up to my face and looked through my fingers at his first love scene with Hayley, when they are ripping the clothes of one another (very un-Darcy). Thankfully it wasn't too painful!. But this is first class drama, so watch out for it! It's splendid dahlings!

I love to hear from you!
