I just watched "Captain America" and couldn't stop texting Tracey because Hayley Atwell IS Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser Grey. She is Claire perfection on a plate! It's uncanny!!
(My apologies if anyone suffered any kind of faintness of heart whilst watching Eddie Redmayne at work. He is positively scrumptious.)
Carol you should post that one you sent me--you know, the one with her and the gun in the "FREEZE, BJR!!!" pose... LOL!ReplyDelete
Wow bang on. I totally agree.ReplyDelete
Absolutely! Now let's get this movie/miniseries made before everyone we love gets any older....ReplyDelete
Btw, I love Claire's collection of last names. I like to include them all in order:
Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser Randall Fraser Grey Fraser
LOL!! She would need a really wide VISA credit card to fit all of that on.
I'll have to watch CA. Hayley looks perfect!
Yes, I'd hate to write that signature! ;)
She does seem like the perfect Claire.
I saw Hayley in a play in London. She's good, but IMHO, she's no Claire! There was a post show chat with the actors and again IMHO, there is a tad too much ego there. She doesn't have Claire's luminescence - or presence. Sorry, I don't mean to be a grinch!!ReplyDelete
I agree wtih Fletchers - Hayley is not how I imagined Claire at all.ReplyDelete
Yeah, I don't think she's Claire, either. I saw Emily Blount (Blunt?? Idk) in the Queen Victoria movie, and I think she still has my vote.ReplyDelete
You've got me addicted -- I can't stop watching the "Pillars of the Earth" clip. I was interested in watching the series before but now I HAVE to! When he says he's so full of longing for her I melt!! I seriously have watched it multiple times a day since you posted it. Sigh...ReplyDelete
Oh Marci...I hear ya. Welcome to Eddie Redmayne (or as I like to call him, "The Voice". ;) I don't want to post anything else from Pillars because I don't want to give anything away (if you haven't read the book!) He's fantastic.ReplyDelete
He he, can I just say this website is like herione or e to me....hi my names Brooke and I'm an Outlander addict.....ReplyDelete
I bought my oldest the Captain America DVD for Christmas and I've watched it twice now. [I really must let him watch it at some point and stop hogging it for myself].ReplyDelete
I thought Hayley Atwell was okay but I to be honest I think that the only reason she reminds people of Claire is the way she is wearing 1940's clothes, hair and makeup. A lot of actresses would have looked very similar given the same attention to detail.
I'm not saying that I would hate the idea of her playing Claire as physically she ticks all the boxes but she wouldn't be my first choice.
I can see her playing Claire, especially after watching her and Matthew McFayden in Any Human Heart. Check it out, it's on Netflix. It has several episodes and I think she comes in around episode 2.ReplyDelete
