Very nice interview with Bill Nighy in which he calls himself a Modernist and then discusses clothes, music, football...

Seems a great guy!

Passed him in Meard Street in Soho a few years ago, he gave me an up and down look as he walked towards me with the person he was with and gave me a little nod. I was quite chuffed.

Didn't know he was a Modernist. I have seen most his acting whilst watching with my kids . I particularly like him in the movie About Time.  .
I wont make any deals with you , I've resigned. .

I notice in one of the photos. Bill is wearing "trousers by Scott Fraser" (Simpson) who some may remember as having been a member of the old forum, (and a very nice chap :) )

According to Scott on Facebook he's the stylist mentioned in the piece, and has known (and gently advised) Bill for years! Fancy that!

I remember reading about him being into Mod as a teenager, years ago and that in his contract, he stipulated that he will only play roles if he's wearing a suit!
