  1. Oh no! Dancing! LOL

    I’m not entirely convinced by that beard. I need to make a closer inspection.

  2. twomoons

    OMG, I’m so excited!! Just the trailer looks amazing. I hope they didn’t show all the best parts in it, like sometimes happens. Once again, his choice of movies says so much about who he is. XO Gabe

  3. This film has been on my radar for so long. I’m so GLAD it is finally getting some play and I can’t wait until it comes here, or goes to DVD, or something!! :-P

  4. I am wondering if you can think of another film where Gabriel has sported a full beard?

    It wouldn’t take him long to grow one. According to an interview I read yesterday, the woman who cuts his hair said she doesn’t know anyone who’s hair grows so thick and so fast.

  5. Hi, Lozzie.
    I have seen all Gabriel’s movies and I don’t remenber beard, only moustaches. Perhaps, in “Exalibur”…

  6. Lozzie, it’s true! In this movie Gabriel has a beard but he is always wonferful,charming,sexy….(my God, I am married!)

  7. Daniela – fear not, many of us are married but, as my friend Michelle says “I may be married, but I ain’t DEAD!”

    Excalibur, yes. I haven’t seen that, actually. I must watch it.

  8. It’s true! And I am NOT certainly dead!!

    In Excalibur he has not much beard. I want to say that in Leningrad he has beard. Sorry to lead you into error and sorry for my grammatical mistakes.

    In this movie, he makes love to his woman covered completely with armour while she ia naked…. :)

  9. Daniela, he tells funny stories about filming Excalibur. I think the fact that the actress he was doing that scene with was actually the director’s daughter added a surreal element to his experience… His first big film and he has to ride a horse in armor that won’t come off! Whew. The actor’s life can be hard… :-)

  10. I am from an Irish background ence the name
    Mary Elizabeth Theresa Bernadette Boylan,but have been living in São Paulo ,Brazil for over 25yrs I am a huge fan of Gabriel Bryne,and would Love to send him an e-mail /fan letter is there anyway? Thanks for any help,please help this poor fan,God bless yeh!
