   Video: "Get Santa"0 Comments

A new video clip of Jim Broadbent and Warwick Davis’s upcoming movie Get Santa has been released.

The Radio Times describes the clip as:

Accio Quote:
This exclusive clip sees nine-year-old Tom (Conner) venture into his dark, slightly creepy garden shed only to find Father Christmas himself having a nap after getting stranded in Britain.

"Shouldn't you be in Lapland?" asks Tom, to which the magical man replies: "Sorting out toys, working out flight paths, feeding reindeer, loading, stowing, stacking, labelling, cladding, packing, ribboning, wrapping. And that's before I even think about turning the Northern Lights on."

   Julie Walters on ageing in the public eye0 Comments

In a new interview with The Sunday Express, Julie Walters describes ageing in public as well as being considered a "National Treasure."

Accio Quote:
It’s just what happens… I didn’t have a crisis at 60 – I found it a relief and felt liberated by it. I thought I could legitimately give up work if I wanted to. I could have white hair. I thought, ‘I can be who I am.’ So I’m not about to go and have a facelift or anything. Mind you… there are times when I wonder what I would look like. Because that’s what everyone has done and pretends they haven’t, isn’t it?

When I was young I knew just what to do
Walking down on Beechwood Avenue
I'm not too old for sympathy
For culture that is crushing me

If I'm alive in 2025
And call you up and talk about your life
The future seems so out of place
Holding on to water's taste

I never see you
I always know why
I never see you at all

So lock me up and throw away the key
For all we know it's never gonna be
In dreams I see what's haunting me
A mirror of the life I need

If I'm alive in 2025
And I still feel this way and wanna die
I promise I will not delay
In crawling out into my grave

I never see you
I always know why
I never see you
I always know why

If I knew what I really wanna do
I'd call you up and listen to the truth
Travelling on trampoline
We see the world through vaseline

I never see you
I always know why
I never see you
I always know why
