This is where it all started for me, North and South and lovely Thornton. Lovely to see him again after John Porter's day in the sun!

John Thornton is simply the best!

Thankyou Nat

That s what started it all for me as well. I think it is the best period drama.

I concur! He hasn't topped him yet. This is just what I need after the adrenaline rush from SB.

Lady Gis-Monet Thorton said...

Yup, I started my RAddiction with this movie. Absolutely LOVE it. ;D Thornton is so deliciously serious, but ever so kind and vunerable. I've introduce two of my best friends to him (one is borrowing my copy of North and South), and they love him! He's the best!

Gah...sorry, speechless for a second. :) I need to rewatch this asap.

BETH said...

Definitely where my RA love started, I still think this is his best work, maybe because it's the best script he's had to work with so far?

Anyhow, it's also my fave period piece, I almost don't want RA to do another period drama because I don't know how he can top JT.

Haven't seen SB yet, so who knows, maybe i'll love him best in that.

Happy Friday everyone :)

It appears RA agrees with us. In The Radio Times on 4 May he is quoted as saying: "Deep down I'm searching for another North and South. It was the first time I started to experiment on screen and take risks."

Well, it certainly paid off as we're still fascinated by his Thornton and Richard's career has never looked back since (though a certain somone did not, *the agony of that moment*)!

Myrtle said...

I read that article too Milly, I thought, YES!!!! PLEASE!!!!!

flandersdreamer said...

Oh yes, Richard, please, do another period drama!
SB is fantastic and compelling and I loved his acting but there's nothing sweeter, stronger and more attractive than Thornton!

@Nat - BRING ON THE SFJP!!!
Looking forward to the new SFR!

Happy Mother's Day to you and all the other RA fangurls!

Avalon said...

Yes, lovely

I seem to keep agreeing with you, Twinkling Moon! But, yes, Mr. A's most COMPLETE portrayal to date? Yes, because it is based on a book, structured, unlike RH or even Spooks.

Now if someone would just fund that Richard III mini-series....
