I'm quite a new Jeremy Brett fan...

I'm quite new to LiveJournal and also quite new to Jeremy Brett's work.  My father is a fan of his Sherlock Holmes and I have gained a liking for it.  A few nights ago I had the opportunity to watch him in "On Approval" with Penelope Keith.  I loved his part and found him very sweet and funny.  I own a copy of "My Fair Lady" and I'm ashamed to say I have only just realised that Freddie was played by the same Jeremy Brett... It makes me feel rather thick in a way.

I have seen a few Jeremy Brett "communities" and have been "shall I join or shan't I join?", and there has always been something which deters me from it.  But something told me this one would be OK.  I'm not interested in talking about personal things, just about his work and his talent, and I hope to make some new friends in the process.

Welcome!

And btw, you are not alone--myself (and quite a few others, from what I'd heard) haven't realised that the actor playing Freddie and SH was the same one ;)

Do check out Mr Brett's other films and TV series--"Number 10" and "Rebecca" in particular, are remarkable.

Yes, I shall. I have seen him in "The Champions" in the "Desert Journey" story. I had seen that before I became a fan of his Sherlock Holmes, and it was a similar "dugh" moment to the "My Fair Lady" one.

Myself I have owned a piece of sheet music for years from "My Fair Lady" and have read time and time again the name "Jeremy Brett" on the front cover. Only recently did I make some kind of connection :P

Haha. I guess we just don't notice things sometimes :)
