He's one of the leads in Alias Grace on Netflix. It's a rather subdued part, though, and no clothing removal. (I'm pretty sure he's wearing a wig for the role and a bad one at that. The hairline goes straight across the top of his forehead like they put it on with a ruler. Anyway, he's fine; the wig is not.) Is he still dating Prince Harry's ex Cressida Bonas?

replies 25Jun 12, 2018 12:14 PM +00:00
WEISS: I read that you think it’s important to maintain a certain air of mystery as an actor. Can you tell me a little bit about that?
HOLCROFT: I don’t think it’s a new concept. I should think most actors probably think this, but I know that when I watch actors, the actors who I know least about I buy into more because I can imagine them as the character. It’s as simple as that. If you lead a very high profile life—and of course, it’s easy to say this, and if you become incredibly famous because of your work some of that is unavoidable—but if you can do as much as you can to keep away from some of that limelight then you just help yourself when it comes to your work. You have a blank canvas, as it were, to work with, rather than people knowing a whole bunch about your life or what you get up to, what you had for breakfast. Everyone is different, and each to their own, as they say, but for me that’s what I would like to try and establish.

He went to boarding school and played the girl parts in school plays lol. He has a good sense of humor about it though.

WEISS: Were you acting at all when you were in boarding school?
HOLCROFT: No, no. God no. I did a tiny, tiny bit. I used to play girls because I had killer legs. [both laugh] No, I didn’t. I was terrible but I looked the youngest so I played the odd woman, but in short, I never had the dream of being an actor until I was at least 22.
WEISS: What was your first role then?
HOLCROFT: In my whole life? I was at school when I was 12 and I played Curley’s wife in John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, who gets killed by the lead character, Lenny. She gets murdered. So I was a girl who got murdered! [laughs] They obviously saw me doing big, big things.

Interview from April 2016:



The British actor Edward Holcroft tells us what he learned from his father, what’s top of his bucket list, and why he’d need extra protection for his nose if he ever found himself halfway up Everest.

Is there something about you, or a challenge that you have faced, that makes where you are today more difficult?

My nose. I have a great, big nose. I am still very self-conscious about it. When I walk in a room it is the first thing I can see everyone look at.

What do you want to do before you die?

Climb Everest. I would love to do it. I was obsessed with it when I was younger, I used to have posters of it on my wall at school. I used to read so many books on it. I was probably more obsessed with the idea rather than the actual reality of climbing it, but I still watch documentaries on it. If I could have a realistic opportunity to climb it, I would love to. I would have to take extra clothing for my nose.

It's true that the British have a lot of actors with great voices, R139.

However, the previous generations of American actors from the Golden Age of Hollywood used to have distinctive voices -- eg. Humphrey Bogart, Katharine Hepburn, James Stewart, etc.

Unfortunately for some reason the younger American actors of today don't have the memorable voices of American actors of the past.

Dear R140, I wish I could agree with you... and frankly, as much I enjoyed Kate, she did have a strong twang.

I'm still trying to think of some examples so I went to Google and all it gave me were British actors and Negro-American actors.

Paul Muni, perhaps? But it was fake wasn't it?

Anne Baxter, perhaps? I think there's a US doco-maker who uses her (or her mimic).

Bogart was gangsterish, raspish and unfriendly; Stewart was dithery rabbit.

Yul Brynner was foreign.

I'm still trying to think of some examples.....
