A Few of My Favorite Things: Actors and Actresses

Welcome to my new blog. I was getting annoyed with Blogger for myriad reasons, so here I am.  And huge thanks to Jessica Jarman for helping me figure out how this all works and helping me set it up. And by helping me set it up, I clearly mean doing it for me because I’m incompetent.

This week we’re talking about our favorite actors and actresses. Weirdly, mine seems to be fixated on the U.K. and Ireland. Go fig. But I’m just gonna roll with it and list them in alphabetical order…because I could use a little less chaos in my life at the moment.


FA - Benedict CumberbatchBenedict Cumberbatch…I don’t care that Jenny Trout says he looks like a lizard in a man suit. I love him anyway.

FA - Hugh DancyHugh Dancy. I love him as Will Graham – love that poor, tortured soul.

FA - Idris ElbaIdris Elba could read me the ingredients on a bottle of sunscreen and I’d be happy. *le sigh*

FA - Anthony HeadAnthony Stewart Head will always be Giles to me. And I’ll always love him for it.

FA - Tom HiddlestonTom Hiddleston and…delayed gratification. *full body shudder*FA - Bradley JamesOh Bradley James, you made me cry so much during Merlin, you bastard.

FA - Katie McGrathKatie McGrath – I adore her. My crush on her is monstrously huge.

FA - Helen MirrenHelen Mirren – my crush on her is equally out of control.

FA - Colin MorganColin Morgan – I can’t wait to see him in The Fall.

FA - Alan RickmanAlan Rickman, I will love you ’til the end of time.

FA - Maggie SmithMaggie Smith is just amazing.

FA - Patrick StewartPatrick Stewart – I’ve loved him since I was twelve and first saw Excalibur.

David TennantOh David Tennant, you delightful Scot.

FA - Kate WinsletKate Winslet  – her performances always stick with me – particularly Clementine from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

There are a ton more, but these are the ones who immediately hopped into my head. Thanks for that, BBC.

  1. I’m totally ashamed of my short ass list now. I love everyone on your list. LOVE. And nothing wrong with loving the brits and irish. So much to love. 🙂


  2. So out of the 14 actors and actresses how many are NOT from the British Isles? o.O


    • Erm…Two are from Ireland, one from Scotland and the rest are English. Clearly, I need to do an American version of this list. 😀

      • You sure love them folks across the pond. 😉 You’d admitted it was fixated across the pond but I wondered if any of them were not from there. 🙂 Nothing wrong with a healthy obsession with those accents 😉 , in fact I got a few crushes on those across the pond myself. Mine would include, from your list, Tennant, Winslet, and Rickman. Add to that Colin Farell, Colin Firth, Gary Oldman, Emma Thompson, Julie Andrews, Jeremy Irons, Sean Connery, Damian Lewis, Gerard Butler and so many more but I can see my list getting more about the hotness factor than the acting factor so I’ll stop.

      • Nothing is wrong with you. There are just too many great actors from that area of the world 😀

  6. All I can say is…where is your Canadian content? it’s okay. I love you even though none of mine are on your list, le sigh.
