Heehee, decided to surf around for Alan Cumming this afternoon while completing a bibliography for my much stressed over Ancient essay and discovered that he too has played a freakish Roman Emperor: Saturninus in Titus w. Anthony Hopkins.
Brilliant. I'm starting to have a thing for anyone remotely Roman. Pure coincidence my formal date's name is Antony and that I'm wearing a Graeco/Roman-style gown of course. I ended up reminiscing to myself over the truly God-awful production of Cleopatra starring the tempestuous Liz Taylor and Richard Burton.
Cleopatra: You will beg.
Antony: I will what?!
Cleopatra: On your knees.
(Antony complains and refuses to do this. Cleopatra rebukes him.)
Cleopatra: I asked it of Julius Caesar! I demand it of you!
Urgh, my Mum said I actually sounded like Liz Taylor after I said that once. Permit me to hang my head in shame.
