Art Malik interview: 'I would love to work in Indian film again'

12 July 2013 9:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Art Malik is renowned for his roles in a succession of films and TV dramas in the '80s centred on the experience of the British Raj.

His evocative portrait of the young Hari Kumar in the ITV production of The Jewel in the Crown led to David Lean casting him in his sweeping epic A Passage to India. Malik was later cast in Mm Kaye's The Far Pavilions.

The Pakistani born British actor has achieved the rare feat of making his presence felt in the realm of international cinema with prominent roles in films such as The Living Daylights, True Lies with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sex and the City 2 and City of Joy.

The versatile star appeared on stage in the West End in the Tom Stoppard play Indian Ink with Felicity Kendal and there was a stint in BBC hospital drama Holby City, in which he played Dr Zubin Khan. »

Gerry Hambling obituary

11 February 2013 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Award-winning film editor who had an instinctive feel for pace, rhythm and nuance

Gerry Hambling, who has died aged 86, was one of the finest editors that the British film industry has produced. He was widely admired, particularly by his peers, for films such as Midnight Express (1978), Mississippi Burning (1988), In the Name of the Father (1993) and Evita (1996). He won many awards from the editors' guilds in the Us and UK, which made up for the fact that, although he was nominated six times, an Oscar always eluded him. He did, however, win the Bafta three times for film editing. My own collaboration with Gerry went back 40 years, as he cut 14 feature films for me, as well as three short films and scores of commercials.

As with many film technicians of his generation, Gerry's choice of profession was serendipitous: born and raised in Croydon, Surrey, he left school at 16 and went to work at the local factory, »
