That superb interview with Maqgie Smith (another on my list of favorite British actors), was such a treat! Instead of the usual rather mundane articles, containing mostly 'facts and figures', the interviewer delved into Maggie Smith's thoughts and feelings about life......and how quickly it passes. A subject that many of us reflect upon--but rarely discuss publicly! And her hoped-for objective, to continue to bring happiness to both herself and to her future audiences, leaves us feeling almost as buoyed-up, as SHE!
Thanks, Amy, for pointing us towarda such a wonderful 'read'!!
I can still remember the first time I watched Maggie Smith in The Prime of Miss Jean Brody. The way she played her role may have seemed too 'mannered' to some---but I thought her acting was brilliant. She completely caught the complex character of this woman who was indeed in her 'prime'!!
I may have watched the film about 6 times now---but I never get bored with it! I can still hear Maggie Smith's lilting, rolling Scottish accent as 'Jean!
