Hello Little Theatre friends,
Every Wednesday I’d like to focus on a well-known (or not-so-well-known) actor who warrants some investigation. As theatre artists, it is vital that we continually study other artist’s work in order to keep our own, individual approach to acting fresh and vital. Today, I would like to focus on one of cinema’s greatest chameleons, Gary Oldman.
Three links to hear about Oldman’s approach to a character and how he prefers to work:
#1: Oldman is interviewed by Teri Gross on WHYY’s Fresh Air. A nice discussion of past roles and Tinker Tailor. Click HERE to listen.
#2. Oldman play “Not my Job” on NPR’s Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me. A very funny interview in which Oldman pokes fun at his on-screen persona. Click HERE to listen.
#3. Video interview with Oldman shortly after he played Lee Harvey Oswald in Oliver Stone’s JFK (1991.) Click HERE to watch.
#4. Lastly, here’s Oldman in the climatic scene of Sid and Nancy. Oldman’s brutal portrayal of Sid Vicious was his breakout role. Click HERE to watch.
Have a great Wednesday, all,
