I want to wish the amazing Judi Dench a very lovely 83rd birthday. For years she has been a compelling presence on screen; projecting dignity, control and steel in all she does. Plus, you’ve got to love that mellifluous voice of hers. So here’s to the wonderful Dame and all she represents. You are much loved.
The sublime Viola Davis turns 52 today. Over the last few years, she has really caught my eye with her grace, humanity and power on screen. She’s truly an outstanding actress of depth and range. Every time I see her, I just know she will be on point and deliver a beautiful performance. So my best birthday wishes to the fabulous Viola Davis. Long may you continue to impress us with your work.
A quintessential tough guy on the screen and all around talent, Clint Eastwood has been acting and directing since before many of us can remember. And with him turning 87 today, I thought it good to pay tribute to him. If you’re talking about work ethic, Eastwood’s is pretty enviable as he’s still going strong. There’s a tenacity to Clint Eastwood, in both his acting and directing, he goes for projects that challenge him. And of course, he’s one bad ass dude too in many of his roles. A talented craftsman and icon, Happy Birthday Clint.
