If there is one way to describe Laurence Olivier, it would be sophisticated, among other definitions, of course. This sophistication was manifested in every film he was in, in the way he spoke with that refined English accent, in his presence and the way he graced the screen with dignity and charisma.
Laurence Olivier was also irrefutably brilliant, able to quote Shakespeare's lines with ease as if he were merely thinking of them.
What always interests me about Laurence Olivier is his ability to bring you into the character's emotions by a single gesture or a tinge of pain, love, guilt or fear within those passionate eyes.
Laurence Olivier remains Hollywood's most talented actors, a thespian and artist, a creator of human emotions, an extraordinarily intense man, and, most of all, an entity whose persona is impossible to be replicated even after all these years, to this very day.
