Christopher Walken great, Hywel Bennett chip on his shoulders.
Back when Deadline was playing at the movies I went to see it with my husband. I have been a Christopher Walken fan for a long time. It really was a very good documentary in a way. But I rented it again about 2 years ago for my analysis of Hywel Bennett as an actor. I knew about Hywel's great ability as an actor from Shelly. I thought Hywel acted with a chip on his shoulders playing 2nd to Christopher Walken. He really looked and acted disgusted playing his role as the British reporter. It may be his personal life reflected through his acting. It was obvious to me as a great admirer of Hywel Bennett that he was in some kind of mental anguish. Perhaps like so many actors vanity got in the way of his professionalism.
It did not take me long to figure out that he had a face lift prior to being cast in Deadline. Before, when his face started to sag he held more heart into his roles. His acting has been superior to some American and British cast in other films such as "Endless Night", and "Murder Elite.
I'm writing a novel which I hope will some day soon be turned into a feature/future movie script. I hope someday I'll be able to get him casted as my main lead male for my novel. But, in the meantime he has to come out of his shell. He has Hollywood potential, but Hollywood has so far turned their backs on this veteran actor from Wales. Hywel take charge from here. Obviously you've let too many people give you professional advice which didn't work out to your expectations of a real Hollywood role call.
I have a dream of meeting this actor some day, but it will be under professional circumstances not as a fan Sincerely, Sakhu
