Latest information will be in bold type.
I was at the MacBraveheart website last night and there is a question
and answer forum. One of the questions was about a movie about Robert
the Bruce. An answer was given that at the time of writing (May 1999)
a movie backed by Mel Gibson is going to be made about Robert the Bruce
and Angus MacFadyen is going to take the part.
Anyone heard anything on this?
From Catherine, another List Member, and rabid Angus Fan ;) "Natasha Henstridge, Angus Macfadyen and Peter Fonda will star in the
thriller 'Second Skin' for Alliance Atlantis' Le Monde Entertainment. The movie,
which begins production May 8 on location in South Africa, concerns a man
(Macfadyen) who opens a small-town bookstore in order to escape his
connections to a mobster (Fonda). When he meets a mysterious stranger
(Henstridge), the bookstore owner is reluctantly drawn back to his dark
From Joanna, one of our List Members....
"Hey guys! I just found out that Angus did a whole bunch out dialogue in
Braveheart computer game. The article below is found at this link.
I gotta get this game!
Here's the part of the article that talked about Angus!
'Another nicety will be the fact that the talent of Angus MacFadyen, who
narrated and starred in the film as Robert the Bruce, has recorded hours
new dialogue, which will be featured in the game. The narration within
game will also be done by Angus MacFadyen which ensure a richness in
quality, authenticity, and setting the stage for the game.'"
Here is a FABULOUS story from Care Sebourn, who was Studio Teacher in Nevada (she is
even in the credits! If we're lucky, she may send us more info in the future! Thank you,
"Not only am I an 'Angus' fan but
sincere movie buff. That is part of the reason I enjoy working on movie
crews. You asked me if I have seen the movie 'Nevada', absolutely! As
part of the crew, I attended the cast party as well as received a
"director's cut" of the movie. As you requested, I would be happy to
some of the wonderful memories about my time on the set of "Nevada". I
must however state that there are somethings that might be considered
personal by Mr. Macfayden and I would not feel it would be fair or right
me to discuss. He is a really really neat guy but, he bleeds when he is
cut just like you and I do, I do not want to be the one holding the
"I am thrilled that you guys have started his web site, he is trully a
talented actor with a promising future. I found him to be a soft-spoken
man who was very kind but also had a bit of the devil in his eye if you
know what I mean. Let me tell you how I met him:
"As I stated before, he and the Nevada cast were staying at my
in Ridgecrest, CA. I was standing with my back to the check-in desk
paperwork with one of my desk clerks named Jean. We had been busy that
as we also were housing the cast and crew of Johnny Depp's movie, 'The
Brave'(it has not been released yet, but I also worked on that one ).
(who is a lovely lady in her 50's) came up behind me and whispered in my
ear, 'Don't make it obvious, but turn around and look what's standing at
the desk.' I turned around and found myself face to face with Angus.
Please keep in mind that I had no idea who he was. He was wearing jeans
and a T-shirt and had his hair pushed back with his sun glasses. To be
honest he took my breath away. I said,'hi' and he said, 'hello'. Jean
behind me and all she could do was stand there.
" 'Are you here to check-in sir?', I asked him.
" 'Yes,Please!' He looked very hot and tired.
" 'Your name sir?'
" 'Angus Macfadyen'.
" 'Mr. Macfadyen, are you here with a movie crew?'
"He answered in a very rich, thick Scottish brogue and simply stated
that he was here with the movie 'Nevada'. I told him it would be just
moment and I preceded to get his paperwork. As I was going to the
I passed Jean still standing there, she was gaping at the poor guy. As
walked by her, I elbowed her lightly and told her to please close her
gapping mouth and wipe the drool from her chin. and help me find Mr.
Macfadyen's registration card. From behind the desk came this
rich male laughter. To my embarrassment, Angus had heard every word I
said.! I tried to regain what was left of my dignity (which wasn't much)
and returned with his paperwork. As he was filling it out, I asked him
what job he was doing with the movie crew. He looked up and smiled and
said he was one of the actors. I started to laugh and said, 'Yeah
don't we all wish!'
" 'No really, what do you do?' Again, he broke out in a very large smile
and told me he was an actor/waiter, usually more a waiter, but he was
playing the part of the lead actress' husband. Lucky her I thought. I
apologized and he graciously said that he was not well known in the US.
be very honest, I still didn't know if I believed him. What surprises
is that he was not arrogant like alot of stars. He could of said, 'Hey,
played Robert the Bruce in Braveheart you stupid woman', but he did not
defend himself. I did not recognize him as "THE BRUCE" because back
watched the movie to see Mel Gibson. You will be happy to hear
however,that I have come to my senses and now watch it to see my
"He asked me if it was always this hot up here and I told
pretty much so. We did alot of small talking while they were preparing
room. I found him to be more than just a physical hunk. I thought he
intelligent and fairly witty. His accent drove me wild. He talks kinda
soft and very rich and sexy. Out on the set, I noticed a very boy-like
side to him and perhaps a wee bit of onryness in his gorgeous eyes(or
perhaps it was the sun, it was 128 in the shade). I have a lot more to
you, but I will save it for another time. I truly believe that Angus has yet to find
right role that will cater pole him into mega stardom. I have watched
work and I know he has super talent
