Favorite Actor Monday

Katrin Cartlidge died too young, at 41, from complications of pneumonia and septicaemia, but she left behind some incredible performances. She was free of fluff and "love me, please, love me." Onscreen, she was fearless, intense, scary, lovely, and funny. I miss seeing her act.

Recommended:
Naked (Mike Leigh, 1993)
Breaking the Waves (Lars Von Trier, 1996)
Career Girls (Mike Leigh, 1997)

I miss her. Watching her in naked made my bones ache. She was brilliant and fascinating to watch always.
