Matthew Macfadyen Advent Calendar

December means it's time for our annual Matthew Macfadyen Advent Calendar.

I hope you'll enjoy the photos in the doors that you can open. It is a way to view "gifts" for each day of December leading up to Christmas. Each December day, another "door" will open and you will be able to view what is behind the door. You must have javascript turned on to view the doors.

Happy Holidays!

(Beware of sound behind some of the doors)

How Matthew Macfadyen Went From Mr. Darcy To Playing That Total Dick On “Succession” - Buzzfeed News

Buzzfeed has an interview with Matthew Macfadyen the reviews the various roles he has had as an actor, most recently as Tom in Succession.

During a recent trip to Los Angeles, Macfadyen spoke to BuzzFeed News with delight about Succession —both about the show itself, which was created by Jesse Armstrong (Peep Show), and about the experience he had making it. He would occasionally slip into Tom’s American accent for emphasis. “Those writers are so funny,” Macfadyen said about that bachelor party scene. “They get to the nubbins. They getright to the cruxof what’s excruciating. Which is: He’s desperate for himself and for his friend Greg to think it’s sexy and OK and —” Tom voice! — “wild.”

“And then there’s that awful dawning realization that it isn’t any of those things,” he continued. “It all happens in that moment — that light dying in his eyes.”

In an ensemble show filled with quotable — and GIFable — performances, Macfadyen has emerged as Succession’s scene-stealer. In the Hollywood Reporter, Daniel Fienbergwrotethat Macfadyen delivers an “Emmy-worthy performance blending obliviousness, insecurity, darkness and optimism in a potent brew.”
