Terence Stamp, London
His beauty is often admired before his acting skills, but while the former has faded somewhat the latter survives, at least when Stamp isn't topping up the retirement fund with another offhand baddie role. Those dodgier movies have thankfully been omitted from this selective retrospective (don't worry, Superman II is still in there). He lit up the screen, and the 1960s, with early films such as Billy Budd, The Collector, Far From The Madding Crowd, Poor Cow and Theorem, then took an extended break in an Indian ashram. Since his return to the day job, he's reminded us what he can do, in The Hit, The Adventures Of Priscilla Queen Of The Desert, even last year's Song For Marion. He's a terrific writer and talker, too, which should make his on-stage interview (8 May) a hot ticket.

British actor Terence Stamp is a bit of an institution and with Man Of Steel just around the corner, he has been speaking to Es magazine to discusses his love of fashion, a blind date with Brigitte Bardot and his position as an ‘urban icon’.

Stamp was once also lucky enough to have »

★★★★☆ Rereleased in selected UK cinemas this week by the BFI ahead of the second half of their Pier Paolo Pasolini season, the Italian provocateur's 1968 film Theorem (Teorema) sees British actor Terence Stamp (Billy Budd, The Limey) star as a divine young bachelor who enters the lives of a well-to-do Milanese household, only to suddenly leave them in complete disarray. Banned in its native Italy for its overt sexual nature - tame, of course, by today's standards - Theorem remains one of Pasolini's most satisfying works, thanks in no small part to a magnificent supporting cast, including a quite sublime Silvana Mangano.
