Re: My name is John Hurt. Actor.
Wow I wish I had seen this earlier!
my first impressions of you were made when I watched I Claudius as a pre-pubescent... always fascinating and mesmorizing!
You are a much respected and loved actor... bless you for your unforgetable contributions ...my main question to you is why on earth are you here?

I hope you haven't gone!


Yes, he played a great Caligula. OP is not John Hurt, take my word for it, or not as you choose.


how can you be sure?

It would have been simple for him to answer my questions. He obviously has no idea who Tia is, if she related to him and where she lives. If he was really John Hurt he would have no problem in answering.

If you are John Hurt then you should recognise my signature. If you do recognise it, please tell me why.

Hey Bill. Why didn't you teach your daughter good parenting skills.

I hear she lets the kids do anything they want, usually the ruination of any kid.

I feel bad for Brad because I know it's a continuing conflict between them.

Guess how I know? My brother married a girl just like Angie.

So sad, and kids will be ruined for life just wait and see.

Hey I like the guy as an actor, but I'm role playing an asshole. I bet John likes that irony around here.

I did love V for Vendetta.

I don't want proof in blood, but how could any of us take anyone famous that seriously here? Plus why reveal yourself at all? Absolutely no point to it.

Think about it - how brain-dead boring it would be to try to prove who you are, so time consuming, when some doubt would always be there, anyway.

You know....

This guy could have been John Hurt.

He only started posting today and earlier did post under the names of "Sigmund Fraud" and "Perry". Who doesn't use silly names with their first posts to GLP.

He did answer the question asked by *Jentle*.

His answer was:
"Mr Q C would have been delighted to meet you i' m sure."

Which is correct.


He may have gotten a little loose after having a few drinks which he admitted and decided to open up.

Re: My name is John Hurt. Actor.
John, assuming you are still reading this thread and it is really you, I would be curious as to what you learned about extra terrestrial life after your role in Alien, and your opinion of life on other worlds in general.

Do you have any scoop on whether the Alien in the movie depicted a scientific consensus on what a dangerous predator on other worlds might be like?

I hope reasonable and intelligent questions gets you interested in the thread again..

Re: My name is John Hurt. Actor.
Well, Mr. Hurt, I'd like to thank you for your fine body of work - it's one of which you may be justifiably proud, and one which others in your field should certainly envy.

Of course -as a longtime fan- I too have a favorite performance of your skills: as Quentin Crisp in THE NAKED CIVIL SERVANT [and the sequel, AN ALIEN IN NEW YORK].

I was priviledged to know Quentin during the final few years of his illustrious life and he spoke very highly of you and your performance of him in his screen biography. His was a gentle soul which you conveyed with a sincerity and depth that still amazes me today, and I am truly grateful that you brought Quentin's personae to life to share with the world-at-large.

This tired old globe could use many more souls such as Quentin's... and yours.

John,

You're a great actor.
You're presence adds so very much to the movies you're in.
Thanks for stopping by.

Don't be too put out by the kids here at GLP.
There is just so much BS here that when the real thing comes along they don't realize it until it's too late.

Re: My name is John Hurt. Actor.
Thanks John for your work!
Winston Smith: In accordance to the principles of Doublethink, it does not matter if the war is not real, or when it is, that victory is not possible. The war is not meant to be won. It is meant to be continuous. The essential act of modern warfare is the destruction of the produce of human labor. A hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. In principle, the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects. And its object is not victory over Eurasia or Eastasia, but to keep the very structure of society intact. Julia? Are you awake? There is truth, and there is untruth. To be in a minority of one doesn't make you mad.
