Exclusive Interview: Michael Palin On Monty Python Reunion, Travel & His Return To Acting

10 December 2013 5:47 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

What can be said about Michael Palin that hasn’t been said already? Perhaps calling him a Renaissance man, or comparing him to a shark that never stops swimming. He’s something different to each generation, be it as a member of Monty Python; a unique explorer and travel presenter neither in the vein of Alan Whicker or Karl Pilkington; a filmmaker; a geographer and railway enthusiast; or as a man of letters both fictional and non-fictional. His works spans every cultural medium imaginable short of painting and sculpture, though chances are he indulges those in his spare time as well.

Palin and Python are back in the news not just for court cases, but for the shock announcement they’re reuniting for a limited amount of shows at the O2 arena next summer. It will be the first time since 1988 they’ve performed together, albeit without the late Graham Chapman. »

Michael Palin, Bafta 2013 winner: 'My life has been a series of lucky accidents'

4 May 2013 4:10 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The actor and presenter on winning a Bafta lifetime achievement award, life after Monty Python and why he's not finished yet

Michael Palin has a measured view of his latest prize. He's delighted to win a Bafta fellowship – of course he is; it's the most prestigious award the Academy bestows – "but my lifetime's not over yet," the 70-year-old says firmly. Palin is firmer than you would imagine, nowhere near as twinkly or boyish as he seems on the telly. "I got my first lifetime achievement award years ago [a British Comedy award in 2002], and I was very excited, but then I got a sense of: Well, can one get a second lifetime award?"

In the decade since his life's work was first honoured, he has presented six hit travel series, written a novel, published two sets of diaries and served as president of the Royal Geographical Society. Add in the preceding decades' work and you »
