Since we are being wishful....
Nat was wonderful in Far from the Madding crowd as a sheep farmer. How about a role as an American cowboy from Texas or Montana. We Texans love our cowboys. The real kind not the fake kind. If Mel Gibson could do an English accent for Hamlet, I bet Mr. Parker could do an American one better.
Also, has he done anything Scottish? Would like to know his cultural heritage. His broad, high, flat cheekbones look a little Scottish to me. And, he'd look fantastic in a kilt.:laugh:

I agree Donna. Nat has gorgeous legs. If you saw Pretending to be Judith there was a shot in it showing his calves, and a kilt would be great on him. Think he could do a real American cowboy too. He did an American accent in Absolute Hell, as an American soldier.

Actually, he just did an American cop in L.A. recently. Can't wait to see it.

Warm regards.

Hi Pat,
I never saw either Absolute Hell or Pretending to be Judith. It may be that our local PBS station didn't air them, or I just missed them. I was working nights and weekends at a hospital about the time those came out. They don't appear to be avaiable on VHS or DVD, either. Rats! I wonder if there are any computer downloads available. :(
What is the name of the name of the new project you mentioned? I will look for it when it comes out.

Hi Donna,

The American movie Nat was just in is A Perfect Host. The movie hasn't even come out yet.

A girl on one of the Nat fan groups sent me Pretending to be Judith, and I downloaded Absolute Hell from thebox (I believe). Been so busy converting my downloads and Christmas I'm not sure where I got a lot of my dvds. Don't know if you can still get these 2 movies or not. They weren't tv series. Nat played an American soldier with accent (sorta) (I could still hear some Brit in it) in Absolute Hell. You might check with your local retail video store to see if they can order them. That's how I got Hamlet and the first 4 or 5 series of ILM.

Merry Christmas!

Hi Pat,
I managed to find Absolute Hell at the library over the holidays. It is volume 5 of the Judy Dench collection. It was interesting seeing Mr. Parker play the role of an American pilot attempting to do an American accent. I think he was trying to do what is called "American Standard", an "accentless" accent few Americans really speak. I do agree he still sounds a bit British. His natural speech pattern is a bit clipped, although maybe not quite as pronounced as in his Lynley role.
Thanks for suggesting this film.

Hi Donna Rae,

I thought Nat did a better jitterbug dance as an American pilot than his accent. It's probably because we know how he really sounds as a Brit. I'm anxious to see if he tries it again in A Perfect Hos. Also, I love him in a mustache and/or beard. He said he had a mustache/beard in this film. Evidently, from the way he described it sounds somewhat like maybe the old western type mustache that continues down the sides of the mouth to the chin. Have you seen Vanity Fair? He has a mustache and long sideburns in it, and when he is in uniform he looks fabulous. That and FFTMC are my 2 favorites of Nat. In case you haven't seen Vanity Fair here is a pic of him:



Warm regards.
