wow can you n ot
Apparently he is 28 in this picture, but he looks like he’s about 18.
Now the question is: did anyone film this while it was on stage? Because I need to see it.
hold onto your top hats and cane
Jeremy Brett and David Burke.
I’m not even slightly ashamed to admit that I looked at this and squealed a little.
this is the sort of shit you’re missing out on if you don’t watch Granada!Holmes
“EAT SOME FUCKING BREAKFAST”
Happy Birthday Jeremy Brett!
Jeremy Brett, aka Peter Jeremy William Huggins, was born today, November 3rd,1933 in Berkswell Grange in Berkswell, Warwickshire, England.
Brett appeared in 41 episodes of the Granada television series of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes between 1984 and 1994. To many he is Sherlock Holmes. In fact one of Brett’s dearest possessions on the set was his 77-page “Baker Street File” on everything from Holmes’ mannerisms to his eating and drinking habits. Brett once explained that “some actors are becomers — they try to become their characters. When it works, the actor is like a sponge, squeezing himself dry to remove his own personality, then absorbing the character’s like a liquid”.
Jeremy Brett allowed Sherlock Holmes to consume him, and he has stood the test of time even to today.
So Happy Birthday Mr. Brett! Have a cream tea wherever you may be.
One actor whom I legitimately dearly miss, and the only true Holmes for me.
Happy birthday, Mr. Brett ♥
