15 Multi-Talented Directors Who Starred In Their Own Movies
Kenneth Branagh: Murder on the Orient Express
Although you may know him as one incredibly suave and yet devastatingly terrible Gilderoy Lockhart, Kenneth Branagh has been both directing and starring in his own movies for years, many of them based on the works of William Shakespeare. His most recent foray, Murder on the Orient Express, is an adaptation of the classic 1934 Agatha Christie mystery novel starring her famed detective Hercule Poirot. The film features a loaded cast including Michelle Pfeiffer, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, and Johnny Depp. The film received mixed reviews, but was praised for doing its original author justice and honor. Surely this won’t be the last we see from the director. Here’s hoping for another magical appearance.
