Nigel Bennett in The Jeweller's Shop (1989)

The Border--Mannering
A while back I posted a few screengrabs of Geraint Wyn Davies in Murdoch Mysteries and I mentioned to shenandora that I had a few Nigel Bennett screengrabs that weren't from The Border, which I've also been posting from. I've always enjoyed recording the TV and movie appearances my favorite actors, especially their early stuff. In the case of the Forever Knight actors it's sometimes a bit hard but the quest is half the fun. A fellow fan provided me a slew of tapes, most of which were of Nigel Bennett. One of the tapes was a 1989 movie called "The Jeweller's Shop" in which he played a ballet choreographer. The movie itself was ok and while Nigel's role was rather small it did have an interesting cast. The cast included Olivia Hussey who starred as Juliet in Franco Zeffrelli's Romeo and Juliet, legendary Hollywood actor Burt Lancaster, actor Ben Cross who once played Barnabas Collins in the remake of Dark Shadows, and Melora Hardin who is now known from The Office but I know her from her integral role in a Quantum Leap three parter. She once guested in an episode of Lois & Clark  as Lois' old college roommate and ever since then I've thought that she'd be perfect to play Lois' mother in flashback in Smallville. She's also the daughter of Jerry Hardin who played Mulder's first informant Deep Throat in The X-Files.

But anyway on to the Nigel Bennett screengrabs.

Oh my golly gosh goodness. "1989," you say? Fascinating!

Nigel's appearance in this movie amuses me so much not because of his role but because of his hair. It's so normal looking and a far cry from the bleached Billy Idol style he sported throughout season 1 of Forever Knight. For me he has a brief passing resemblance to Colm Feore in "Blood Money".

Also, the outfit he was wearing in the last few screen grabs struck me as very familiar and then it hit me. Nick wore a similar turtleneck and slacks in "Dance by the Light of the Moon". Hee!

You're absolutely right about the passing resemblance to Colm Feore as the BM villain; that's worth noting, and it's strongly in the hair.

Goofy thought: Lacroix's reaction to a stack of photos of Mr. Bennett playing people other than Lacroix. Older people, younger people, sunburned people in lacy blue shirts on the SciFi Channel...
