Can I hear some love for Ben Wishaw?

I wasn't aware of this chap until he played Richard II (not the car park dwelling horse fancier; the one before) in the BBC's stunning 'Hollow Crown' Shakespeare adaptation. I love a bit of the Bard and his effeminate performance was off-the-scale good, blew me away and actually gave me shivers. I thought, who's this talented young buck?, and then promptly forgot all about him.

So imagine my delight when he popped up in Skyfall as Q! I nearly burst into applause. He was fantastic in that too.

So please, come here and share your admiration for the man - the actor I've felt most excited about (not like that, filthy) in a long time - and please recommend me some films and stuff to catch him in.

Thank you to homersimspon_esq for already recommending Bright Star.


In Thom we trust.

His plot strand as Frobisher was the best one in Cloud Atlas.

I've only seen him in Skyfall but he was pretty good in a hipster kinda way. His tone of voice/delivery reminds me of Steven Mackintosh.

He has played the hero of the cinematographic adaptation of Le Parfum (the perfume). Wich is a book from Patrick Suskind. A very great book. And a very great movie, he's really good in it.

I remember him first in Layer Cake as Sidney but certainly grabbed my attention in Perfume: The Story of a Murderer which is one of my most favourite films,but then I'm also a Tom Tykwer fan.
Lots of reasons for loving I'm Not There and Ben was definetly one of them. Then he completly broke me in Bright Star with his performance as John Keats just mesmerizing.
I think Ben is a stand out british actors of our times and I would always be interested in seeing him in a film,I havn't as yet but am looking forward to seeing Cloud Atlas.

Think he is very good, didn't relise he'd been in so much

A very sublte character actor, can play bemused geeks, charmers or sinister villains. Really liked him in The Hour on TV.
