Hugh Grant, Kristin Scott-Thomas and Allison Janney will each be the subject of BAFTA’s A Life In Pictures in the run-up to Christmas.
The events will take place from 9 December to 13 December at Bafta’s headquarters in London.
Christopher Nolan and Hugh Jackman have already been announced to take part in the career retrospectives. Unsurprisingly, both events sold out straight away.
I’m very excited as I’ve managed to get tickets to Janney’s event.
Hugh Grant will discuss his career on Saturday 9 December. Grant first gained international attention with his BAFTA and Golden Globe winning performance in Four Weddings And A Funeral. Since then he’s starred in such films as Sense and Sensibility, Notting Hill, Bridget Jones’ Diary, and most recently Paddington 2 as the villain Phoenix Buchanan.
On Sunday 10 December Grant’s Four Weddings co-star Kristin Scott Thomas, who also won a BAFTA for her performance in the film, will discuss a varied career that’s included The English Patient, Nowhere Boy and this year’s The Party. Scott Thomas also stars as Clementine, the wife of Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman) in her latest film, Darkest Hour, which is due for a January 2018 release in the UK.
Award-winning actress Allison Janney will share her insights on Wednesday 13 December. She is, of course, best known for her roles in The West Wing and Mom. She has also appeared in American Beauty, The Help and The Way Way Back. Janney will next be seen in the biopic I, Tonya as the mother of famed US figure skater Tonya Harding.
