Pete Postlethwaite RIP

Actor Pete Postlethwaite was once memorably and affectionately described as having a face like a clenched fist. According to Stephen Spielberg "probably the best actor in the world today ". I was fortunate enough to photograph Pete on a commission for Channel 4 Television/Lupus Films. He was recording the voice over for an animation of Oscar Wilde stories for children in a West London Recording Studio and i would have 15 minutes with him in a small office next door.

Pete ran through the gamut of his characters expressions from surprised to bemused via mock indignation and mild fury.
