What a classy lady Oscar seeker Miranda Richardson is! My utterly charming interview with this lovely lady is now up on You Tube on my channel, and she’s in the Main Frame! You can’t miss her! www.youtube.com/StephenHoltShow
She’s had a very, very long illustrious career in British films ever since her debut feature “Dances with a Stranger.” American audiences may remember her VERY different portrayals in “The Crying Game” and more recently in “Phantom of the Opera” as Madame Giry, the Opera’s ballet-mistress.
She got her two previous nominations for her searing portrait of a woman going mad, then coming back again in “Tom and Viv” about the poet T.S. Eliot and his crazy first wife Viv. Who may have been simply been an undiagnosed manic-depressive. And Miranda also got nominated for “Damage” playing a betrayed wife. The first nomination was for Best Actress, the second for Best Supporting Actress.
This time her spot-on performance as MP/Secretary of State Barbara Castle, comes on at the end of the film and really does steal the show. Can Miranda get a THIRD nomination for “Made in Dagenham” just out today and getting rave reviews everywhere?
I think she will.
