TTSS Behind the scenes
John Hurt #2
Our second portrait of the BAFTA winning actor John Hurt, shot yesterday ahead of “An Audience with John Hurt” at the University of Lincoln’s Performing Arts Centre.
I just happened to be rewatching Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy after recently seeing Skyfall and I noticed that the ugly bulldog sculpture M has on her desk is the same that Control has in his office! A nice little nod, I think! Spymasters dig kitschy bulldogs.
Mod Notes: As the observation has already been made, I wasn’t going to reblog this one, but for this line: “Spymasters dig kitschy bulldogs.”
It was my observation first >__>
Can I please have that fic where M and Control are buds and Control totally got her the little bulldog desk statue?
….Head canon accepted.
In part because I kind of love the idea of them being cross-‘verse drinking buddies and every time Control gets into a nit about Percy, M being like “Yeah? Well at least you don’t have the bloody showboat agent that I’ve got to deal with.”
Dear Sam Mendes,
you’re so damn original.
