Adrienne Corri obituary

28 March 2016 8:02 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Actor who played Shakespearean roles and in Hammer horror movies, as well as such well-known films as Dr Zhivago

Adrienne Corri, who has died aged 85, was an actor of considerable range and versatility whose career ranged from the high – with Shakespearean roles alongside Ralph Richardson and Alec Guinness – to the decidedly low, including appearances in many quota quickies and low-budget horror movies that showcased her striking red-haired beauty. Although seen regularly on big and small screens in the 1950s and 60s, Corri is mainly remembered for her participation in the short but notorious gang rape scene from Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange (1971). Despite complaining to Kubrick about the multitude of takes, Corri retained a friendship with the director for a short while afterwards. One Christmas she gave him a pair of bright red socks, a reference to the scene, in which she is left naked but for such garments. »

My sister and I watched Full House like it was a religion. We knew all the catchphrases, we laughed every single time Uncle Jesse did his Elvis impression or baby Michelle quipped "You got it, dude!" We even thought John Stamos' mullet, which basically looked like a raccoon landed backwards on his head, »

Nathaniel Marston's Mom Honors Beloved Soap Star: 'The Moment of Redemption for Nat Happened Just Before He Died'

22 January 2016 8:00 AM, PST | | See recent news »

With his chiseled jaw and easy smile, it's no wonder Nathaniel Marston found fame as Dr. Michael McBain on One Life to Live. But his friends, family and the fans who he'd stop in the middle of New York City's bustling streets to chat with remember him more for the warm way he'd greet them: a bear hug. About 100 mourners gathered during Marston's memorial Saturday in N.Y.C's grand Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine, and those who gave eulogies all remembered how he'd envelop everyone he met in his arms. Speaking to People in a pew after the service, »
