Tribeca: An Englishman in New York Red Carpet
Itís one thing to play a character more than once when you have a film franchise or simply a film with a sequel. In John Hurtís case, he is revisiting a role he played over 30 years ago. Hurt played a youthful Quentin Crisp in 1975ís The Naked Civil Servant, which was based on the gay iconís autobiography. An Englishman in New York picks up where The Naked Civil Servant left off, with Crisp spending the latter years of his life in New York.
On the red carpet for the filmís premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, the cast was well aware of the significance of this achievement. Jonathan Tucker was thrilled to see support for the film and for such an important story. Hurt was on hand to give a brief history of his experience playing Crisp and Cynthia Nixon followed up by recognizing how unusual it is to do what Hurt has done. Swoosie Kurtz wraps things up by expressing her reverence for Nixonís acting abilities. Check out what the cast told me for yourself below:
