Ian McDiarmid - Tony Award Winner!

Ian McDiarmid
Tonight was a very special one for actor Ian McDiarmid (Palpy himself) he won a Tony Award (outstanding performances in Broadway plays). The award was for Best Featured Actor in a Play for his role as Teddy in Faith Healer.

Here's the pic of him accepting his Tony.
After his speech he let out a "Fantastic!!" hehe

He played opposite Ralph Fiennes (Frank Hardy, the Faith Healer) and Cherry Jones in the much talked about play about a faith healer whose powers were only intermittent, McDiarmid played Teddy, Frank Hardy's manager.

Here's a little excerpt from the play (his performance in it) and a slide show from The New York Times. Click "Skip this ad"

Congrats to Mr. McDiarmid!

Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing a photo of Ian looking normal. I really think he should have won something from "Episode III", but Hollywood is very cruel to creative directors.

How do you keep up with all of this?!? I am so grateful you do, or I would know nothing about what these guys are doing! Congratulations to Ian

I love the photo of him accepting the award and you're right, FAN4YEARS he does look "normal" finally in this one...of course he is being himself.

Keep up?, the almighty alert system, that's how. Since I work so close to my computer I can both work and fiddle around with my site at the same time.

I'm only too glad to be able to share these sorts of things with people, I enjoy seeing them myself.

Thanks for coming by!
