Mark Strong!!!!

One of life’s purest pleasures is walking into a movie house expecting to see a film starring so-and-so and discovering it actually also stars Mark Strong.


I’ve just watched Kingsman: The Secret Service and while it’s an absolute shame Mark Strong doesn’t get top billing for these things, it’s also such a delight to squeal (silently), “OMG, Mark Strong is in this movie too!”

I feel so strongly about it that I am writing about it in a travel blog.

I wasn’t even a fan until I started seeing him everywhere. Stardust. Robin Hood. Sherlock Holmes. The Eagle. (I mean, I can’t even believe I’ve seen The Eagle, much less found Mark Strong in it.) A host of other films I haven’t seen. And some really good ones. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy! Zero Dark Thirty! The Imitation Game! And now Kingsman.

Seriously, I don’t know what I’d do if I go to London, get on the Tube, and see Mark Strong. Would I be like “OMG, Mark Strong is in the Tube too!”? The surreal-ness would kill me.

  1. He’s talented actor and has a strong screen presence. Did you ever see that amazing car commercial(can’t believe I just wrote that) featuring “British villains”? He’s in it! I’m not sure where t aired outside the US but I just ate it up.

    I hope you have a celebrity sighting when you’re in London and fingers-crossed it’s a Mark Strong sighting and it’s not too much to handle! =)

    • When I saw Mark Strong in The Imitation Game, I posted in Facebook that I was forming my own Mark Strong fan club haha, and a friend who lives in the US pointed me to this commercial. He said it aired during last year’s Super Bowl? I love it! Probably the only thing missing is Alan Rickman! His Snape has totally changed the way I imagine saying the word “obviously.” 😀

      • Haha! How DOES one set up a fan club? 😀 I’ve never joined a fan club in my life but I think Mark Strong should have one! 😀 Actually I’m sure he does have one but I’m not really into groups so I’m just gonna make my own club. 😀

      • I’m in about 10 of my own private fanclubs when you put it like that. Sometimes it’s the way go! Like what I like as much as I want and that’s that=) But if you ever begin your Mark Strong fan club I’ll support it!
