INSPIRATION & DAVID WILMOT

Sometimes you see a film or a play which lingers in the mind because it's so bloody brilliant - and one such film was SHADOW DANCER which I liked so much that I saw it twice in one week!  One of the reasons it was so good was down to the superb acting of the entire cast - exemplified by actor David Wilmot, who deserves an Oscar for his brooding and menacing performance.  Watch the trailer here and you'll see exactly what I mean.  (He's the one threatening the heroine).

Imagine my surprise when fellow author Abby Green arrived in London with a signed photo of said actor, which she'd brought all the way from Dublin's fair city.  What a gal!
And thanks to our lovely senior editor Joanne Grant who took this picture of me posing with it at our annual author party where much merriment and inspiration was to be had by all.

  2. Thanks for the post Sharon - and bringing my attention to Shadow Dancer. The trailer is certainly compelling. (And guess it's a really good indication that the only negative review on Rotten Tomatoes I see is from The Daily Mail!). What do you think of Clive Owen? Anyone remember the series called Chancer twenty odd years ago?!

    1. I think Clive Owen is a very good actor, Jack - and Andrea Riseborough is a stunning lead in SHADOW DANCER - but for me the most outstanding performance was by David Wilcox. I don't think I've ever used the words tour de force about an actor before, but I'm using it now!
      Go and see it.
