1989 interview with Edward Hardwicke {x}

—“There was a time when people would say, ‘How do you enjoy playing Holmes?’ and I would say, ‘I wouldn’t cross the street to meet him’. I then discovered that, of course, I meant that he wouldn’t cross the street to meet me.”  (1991 NPR interview)

Usually I paint him a bit too smoothly, so he ends up looking way younger than he should, but this time I really tried to make him look “properly”.  I’m just hoping he does look like a 50 year old this time.

You may say that this is one of many similar Jeremy portraits I’ve done, but I just couldn’t resist capturing this gaze. He’s staring straight into your fangirl heart ;) 

I really don’t know what’s with me and pink and violet shades these days. Love them a bit too much.

Edward is even more remarkable. I’ll give you an example. You can publish it or not, it makes no difference to me. When I came out of the asylum, the person who collected me was Edward Hardwicke. He took me to an Italian restaurant. I had a pasta and a glass of red wine. He then drove me back to my home where we sat and had a cup of tea. It was Edward Hardwicke. He is one of the loveliest people, and I suppose he is the best friend that any man has ever had….in life. Which is after all how Doyle describes Watson.

Unused promotional photo. The photo was retaken after it was realized Brett was still wearing his earring.

Jeremy Brett at his best

Sometimes I just go, watch an episode of Granada Holmes, enjoying every minute with pure joy, loving Jeremy Brett’s crime solving dearly, sobbing with David Burke over the “Reichenbach Fall”, cheering with Edward Hardwicke when the best and only consulting detective ever lived comes back to live.

And sometimes just sit in silence, when the end credits roll, and you realize, such genius will never act again.
