“To be given this at the end of making it is a really lovely feeling.” – Tom Hollander
We loved "the Nightmanager "and we loved the acting of Tom Hollander .
We wondered if he could be a descendant of Jerome Nicholas Hollander.
So we looked what Wikipedia could tell us .
Hollander portrayed Lord Cutler Beckett, the "heavy" in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.
In 2010, Hollander and writer James Wood co-created the TV series Rev., a sensitive comedy about the all-too-human vicar of an inner-city parish. Reviews called it intelligent, realistic and very funny. Hollander played the sympathetic title character, Rev. Adam Smallbone. The show won a BAFTA in 2011 for Best Situation Comedy, among other awards and recognition.
So by now we have a name that sounds familiair, pirates and a reverend.
Which in our family is to good to be true .
And yes that is so .
(according to internet ) Tom Hollander is a British actor. His father, Anthony Hollander, was from a family of Czech Jews (who converted to Catholicism). His mother, Clare E. (Hill), is of English descent.
So not a descendant of Jerome Nicholas Holland, but it would be nice to see to see an episode of "Who do you Think you are about " Tom Hollander.
