Actor Shows Versatility
25 August 2004 | by (Parma Heights,Ohio,U.S.A.) – See all my reviews



John Rhys-Davies has demonstrated his range of characters in a variety of settings and mediums.It is my understanding that he has essayed major Shakespearean roles on the stage and he has played both heroic and villainous parts in films,radio performances,and television mini-series and series.His performances are always filled with zest,insight,creativity,and fun.Even his villains are admirable,at least in the scope of their efforts.After all,we like our villains manly,now,don't we? he has such an enjoyable time portraying the Babu,that it wasn't until I watched this for the 3rd or 4th time around,that I realized the inside joke.The Babu,witty,humorous,sharp,shrewd,and insightful,is a splendid parody of Robert Morley.Bravo!
