Nicholas Farrell (born Nicholas Frost in 1955) is an English stage, film and television actor.

Biography

Il fait des études supérieures à l'université de Nottingham, puis entre au Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, une des écoles les plus cotées du Royaume-Uni pour les comédiens, où il a dans ses classes Daniel Day-Lewis. Après ses études, il devient de la Royal Shakespeare Company et participe à plusieurs productions aux côtés de Kenneth Branagh.

En 1981, au cinéma, il joue le rôle du coureur Aubrey Montague dans Les Chariots de Feu (Chariots of Fire), qui remporte l'Oscar du meilleur film. Dès lors, il décroche de nombreux seconds rôles dans des productions cinématographiques et télévisuelles. En 1983, il incarne Edmund Bertram dans la mini-série britannique Mansfield Park et, l'année suivante, il est Teddy Bingham dans la mini-série Le Joyau de la couronne (The Jewel in the Crown), puis Sir Hugh Belcher dans le film Greystoke, la légende de Tarzan (Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes).

En 1995-1996, il fait partie de la distribution de trois adaptations cinématographiques de pièces de Shakespeare : il joue Montano dans Othello, réalisé par Oliver Parker ; Antonio dans La Nuit des rois (Twelfth Night or What You Will), réalisé par Trevor Nunn ; et enfin Horatio dans Hamlet, réalisé par Kenneth Branagh.

En parallèle à ses rôles au cinéma et à la télévision, il monte régulièrement sur scène à la Royal Shakespeare Company, notamment dans Le Marchand de Venise (The Merchant of Venice), Jules César (Julius Cesare) et Hamlet, ou encore dans des productions de La Cerisaie de Tchekhov, des Sorcières de Salem (The Crucible) d'Arthur Miller, et, en 2011, au Chichester Festival, de South Downs de David Hare et La Version de Browning (The Browning Version) de Terence Rattigan.

The film begins in September 2008 (opening against the backdrop of news of the Islamabad Marriott Hotel bombing) with an elderly Lady Thatcher buying milk unrecognized by other customers and walking back from the shop alone. Over the course of three days, we see her struggle with dementia and with the lack of power that comes with old age, while looking back on defining moments of her personal and professional life, on which she reminisces with her (now-dead) husband, Denis Thatcher, whose death she is unable to fully accept. She is shown as having difficulty distinguishing between the past and present. A theme throughout the film is the personal price that Thatcher has paid for power. Denis is portrayed as somewhat ambivalent about his wife's rise to power, her son Mark lives in South Africa and is shown as having little contact with his mother, and Thatcher's relationship with her daughter Carol is at times strained.
