Archibald Alexander Leach created the stage name Cary Grant and it seems that he even wanted to be Cary Grant as well. The title of this blog post is a quote from the great man himself. He was born in Bristol, England but later in his life once he reached the Hollywood leading man status he gained American citizenship.
He was nominated twice for an Academy Award but only ever won an honorary Oscar. Grant has often been voted the greatest movie star of all time – if not coming first he is very near the top. His charisma and on-screen presence really was just incredible, he had a brilliant charm and manner that it was impossible not to love him.
This month’s LAMB Acting School features Cary Grant, who I list as one of my favorite actors. He had an incredible on screen presence and really was something else. We don’t see actors like Grant anymore, or even see characters like he played. They were always so charming and obviously he was so handsome.
