About fedoralady

I'm an LA native--Lower Alabama, that is. My husband of more than 30 years and I live here on a portion of my family's former farm with two gorgeous calicos and a handsome GSD mix. My background is art education, and over the years I've been a teacher, department store photographer, sales associate and a journalist. My husband, his business partner and I have Pecan Ridge Productions, a video production company, for which I shoot & edit video and stills and manage marketing. I also still write part-time for the local paper. I love movies, music, art, photography and books, and my tastes in all of them are eclectic.

  1. I’m watching now Guy S3 épisode 1 in slow motion with VLC media player. It’s incredible, you can see (26′) his adam’s apple up and down. That is fascinating and want to kiss the screen.

  2. He is absolutely beautiful in RH S3. Let the man play Richard III, please, the version described in Rhoda Edwards’ Book “Some Touch of Pity”. There is one scene in it that has haunted me ever since I read it – Richard awaiting Henry Tudor’s landing in Nottingham Castle. It’s after his wife and son’s death, and he wears stark black clothes and only jet jewelry. He is incredibly sad, but at the same time trains like mad for the fight. These are scenes that Richard would play awesomely, with his talent for tragedy.

    • I agree, Nietzsche, I think he was born to play the role. Seeing him in S3 just confirmed that idea for me. No one does pain and angst and passion better than he, IMHO, and he has the right look–the Plantagenet nose, the regal bearing.

      • I really enjoyed Sharon Kaye Penman’s fictionalised biography, The Sunne in Splendour, and I think that’s one of the books Richard is working with. He says he’s got a historian and a screenwriter working on the project. As a Riccardian and being mad about RA, I’m crazy eager for the project to go forward. If I had a few million (euros, pounds, whatever) lying around, I’d be happy to invest.

        • Hopefully after The Hobbit more people will be willing to invest in the project! 🙂 I don’t want him to just produce it though! Want to see him act in it! When I heard him talk about it he didn’t mention actually taking on the role, just that he was taking “baby steps” towards producing.

          • Kevin Spacey is 12 years older than RA and I saw him last summer in the title role of Richard III at the Old Vic in London… OK, I know that’s the Shakespeare version and that’s not the story Richard wants to film. And I just checked on Wikipedia and the real RIchard III died at the age of 33…So if RA wants it to be realistic, then yes, he may well be too old for the role by the time it gets filmed. Ah well.

          • Richard III may have been only 33 when he died, but I bet he looked older by today’s standards. Life was hard then, and short. Forties and fifties were considered elderly. Richard probably wouldn’t need any touching up.

            • The life of man in a state of war–“Nasty, brutish and short.” Very true, Mezz. People who managed to live to 75 or 80 were considered absolutely ancient.

              You know, I even find people today often look younger than people of the same age did in my childhood. Changes in hairstyles, eyeglasses, clothing–all those things come into play. My oldest sister is a grandmother but she certainly does not dress or look as my grandmother did whern I was a child.

          • Yes, Mezz, that’s a very good point. Life expectancy was so much shorter back in those days. So really, he shouldn’t worry about being too old for the role! 🙂

    • Glamour Guy is nothing less than stunning. I remember how the breath left me when I saw him turn around and face the camera, that slight smirk crossing his face. “Sir Guy, you are bee-yooo-tiful.”
