Charles fond of Pink Panther
ACTOR Tom Hiddleston has described the works of directing greats like Alfred Hitchcock and Sir David Lean as part of Britain’s ‘national heritage’ at an event where the Prince of Wales revealed his own cinematic tastes.
Hiddleston, the star of The Night Manager, made his comments during a British Film Institute (BFI) event for 40th anniversary of Charles’s patronage of the organisation.
Charles was joined at the celebration by actor David Oyelowo, famed for his role as Dr Martin Luther King in Selma, who spoke out in favour of the BFI’s work nurturing some of the next generation of filmmakers under its academy scheme. After being shown some of the BFI’s Peter Sellers collection featuring photographs from the Pink Panther movies, the heir to the throne confessed: “I have to say whenever I put one of these on it always raises my spirits.”
Hiddleston chatted to Charles and said the prince told him he had enjoyed the The Night Manager ‘very much’.
