Question of the day.

Hi people! đŸ™‚

If you could spend the day with a celebrity, who would you choose?

My answer:

I’m not particularly oriented nor interested in celebrities overall. I have my fazas but you could hardly call any of them a celebrity. Enya is well-known around the world but she’s way too private to suit that term and you don’t really hear much about her as herself, and Cornelis was a bit like a Swedish celebrity in that all sorts of more or less trashy magazines would tattle about his private life, and he became very well-known shortly before his death, but I’m not sure this term suits him that well either, plus he’s no longer alive. But if that would count, and if he’d be alive I think I’d choose him. If not, I quite like Helena Bonham Carter lately, and although I’m not crazy about her, perhaps it would be really nice to meet her.

You? đŸ™‚

Question of the day (23rd July).

Who is a celebrity you enjoy watching in movies/TV?

My answer:

Celebrity, hm, I’d say my previous crush – well, he’s still my crush but he just got dominated as it is always with my crushes after some time – Cornelis Vreeswijk, but I don’t really know if I can cal him a celebrity, because first, he’s not living any longer since the late 80’s, and second, he definitely could be called a celebrity in his time, but only a local celebrity, in Sweden, so, does it count? Anyway, he was mostly singer/songwriter, also an outstanding poet, but he also played in a few movies including my favourite one – “Rännstensungar” (Guttersnipes), I love this film mainly because of him and his play and his role, he’s just so so expressive. And generally whenever I can see any of my more or less famous crushes anywhere on the TV I am over the moon and all the possible galaxies.

But I guess that’s boring and rather predictable of me to say it, so, other than that, recently, like a few months ago, me and my Mum were watching “The King’s Speech”, well I actually watched it before and it was fascinating but it was ages ago and I liked it so I wanted to watch it again and sort of refresh it, this time without any subtitles or anything to challenge my English a little bit, and I thought my Mum would like it too. And, the person who for some reason has reeally drawn my attention and interest was Helena Bonham Carter – playing Queen Elizabeth in this film. – I don’t know, just something in her play spoke to me, I liked her in that role, and I don’t often care that much about acting in movies, if I care about movies at all. but there was something special to me about her play. And after that I wanted to get to know Helena more and I did, I read a lot about her, which got me to the conclusion that in a way she’s just my type of person, and then I watched some other movies with her, so far only two – “Henry VIII and Great Expectations – and I particularly liked her in the latter as miss Havisham, she was awesome, I only regret I didn’t have anyone to audiodescribe it for me, but anyway. So yeah I think if I had to choose someone more widely known it would be Helena.

Oh and another actress I like, she’s certainly not a celebrity, but I had a time when I watched or listened anything with her I could is Catherine Lundell. She’s Swedish, she’s a very niche actress and doesn’t seem to play a lot nowadays, she has some sort of chronic illness and she is also a quite dynamic activist in that field. I like the roles she always get, how unique they are, and I like her voice, which is quite husky, it’s I guess the effect of her illness but it really fits many of her roles I think. She’s cool.

So how about you? đŸ™‚
