Patrick Stewart schools fiancee on finer points of acting
05:00 AM, Aug 28, 2013
In that unmistakable voice, Sir Patrick Stewart, 73, lets his fiancée, singer Sunny Ozell, 35, know that he’s about to introduce her to something special during their latest acting “class.”
“We’re at the point in this class when I’m about to show you the quadruple take,” he booms, with an adorable grin on his face. “It’s a rarely-used device in comedy, but it has its place.”
He goes through the paces of the double, triple and quadruple takes while Ozell, feet propped up on his legs, giggles along.
“What you have to understand about the quadruple take,” he says before launching into his repertoire of takes, “is it is not in the same style as the single or double take. It’s a different style of physical comedy.”
After his neck-snapping quadruple take, Stewart quips, “That might have been, actually, the quintuple take because I lost count halfway through. But you get the principle it remains the same.”
We wonder if there will be any quadruple takes at the couple’s wedding, which is to be officiated by Stewart’s X-Men co-star Sir Ian McKellen.
