Unexpected Heartthrobs: Laurence Olivier

“How can this possibly be unexpected?!” you cry. Well, all right, calm down. I’ve not seen him in anything until not that long ago, when I watched Rebecca, so you know, chill. No wonder he got to be Mr Darcy, Maxim de Winter and Heathcliff!

And just because the same page where I found the image above also had a picture of him with a cat:


Traxy Thornfield

A Swedish introvert residing in Robin Hood Country (Nottingham, UK) with a husband and two cats. She's an eager participant in tabletop and play-by-post roleplaying, woodworking, photography and European travel, when there's not a plague on. Might get a novel out one of these days, if she doesn't get too distracted along the way.

  1. He was in Henry V, the first Shakespeare film I saw when I was a young teen, and I developed a major crush on HV because of it.

    1. Shakespeare wrote a LOT of plays based on former kings, didn’t he? 🙂

      Hm, LO reminds me of Jon Hamm on the second photo. Strange.
