You are most congenially welcome to one of the most interesting topic about British actors , their movies and their biographies. These movies and actors maybe are not the most successful in terms of awards; but they are my favourites. Each actor here have made a distinct contribution to british films and they are pleased to have roles acclaimed worldwide. What I like is that the actor analyses deeply the motivations and emotions of the character in order to personify him or her with psychological realism and emotional authenticity. Using that way of expression , an actor recalls emotions or reactions from his or her own life and uses them to identify with the character being portrayed. Most actors are often characterized as immersing themselves so totally in their characters that they continue to portray them even off-stage or off-camera for the duration of the project. However, in my opinion this is a popular misconception. While some actors do employ this approach, it is generally not embraced by others , they emphasising a different one of using creative imagination. Acting offered a systematized training that developed internal abilities such as sensory, psychological, emotional and it revolutionized the movie and theater. The British actors I have chosen such as Hugh Grant, Antony Hopkins , Seann Connery and Laurie Hugh are the successful ones , committed and passionate perfectionist on a film set, they have constantly opted to describe themselves as not being reluctant actors but who choose to be devoted to their careers and works. They are noted by co-workers for demanding endless takes until they achieve the desired shot according to their own standard.
