Some more of my muses: Gary Oldman. If I had to pick a favourite actor, it would be Gary - he’s so versatile. He’s sexy without being classically handsome, but can also be offputtingly creepy (Leon) or blandly avuncular (Batman) - he just disappears into the role. He made Coppola’s Dracula bearable and almost rescued The Scarlet Letter (though I don’t think anyone could really have fixed that one). He was the perfect Sirius Black and his turn in The Fifth Element just made that film - but Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is still my favourite Oldman movie.
Things I learned from him: I’m absolutely terrible at acting, and he’s great at it.
