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:
Pride and Prejudice
Pillars of the Earth
As We Live Now
Death at a Funeral
In My Father’s Den
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!
