Who can be romantically linked to Kenneth Branagh...and how closely?

(e.g. Kenneth Branagh)

(e.g. Kevin Bacon)

 

Shares two roles with Laurence Olivier: Henry V and Hamlet. He and Olivier also both directed their own performances in both films. He also directed Sleuth (2007), a remake of the 1972 film, in which Olivier starred. This time, Michael Caine played Olivier's part, while Jude Law played the second of two roles he shared with Caine--having previously appeared in Alfie (2004).

 

He was awarded the 1988 London Critics Circle Theatre Award (Drama Theatre Award) for Special Award.

 

I like to cast actors I admire, one`s that are talented. Each one will bring something new to the part. This play has been done thousands of times and now certain characters are too familiar.

AcidQueen90 - Genius, totally genius. I wouldn't have gotten through high school Shakespeare quite as well without drooling over him. Not to mention that he spends a good chunk of Frankenstein shirtless. (10 days ago)
lisasfanno1 - he is brilliant. each of his movies are great! (7 months ago)
Ulisses - Kenneth Branagh adapted on cinema some of the best adaptations of the work by William Shakespeare. I´d especially enjoied his comedy Too much ado about nothing . And his definitive version of Hamlet. It´s imposible to superate his adaptation. He was a genious of the present playing the work of a genious of the past. (4 years ago)
