Skilled in the type of James Mason-esque vocal artistry that lulls even the most spirited of folk into a somnolent trance, his linguistic adroitness is merely one of several outstanding features. Also notable are his deeply significant bitter-chocolate eyes, his aptitude for accents, and his extraordinarily generous grin. Adored as a screen actor and revered on the stage, Mr West is an elegant example of British talent who straddles the two mediums with ease. Who else could play Richard Burton without turning his performance into a caricature? FUCKING NO ONE, that’s who. Check him out in the upcoming film Pride, it’s properly lovely. Dom is fabulous in it as an eighties luvvie and the film is poignant and hilarious.
(Hannah? T’were you who wanted Dom, right? Xx)
