They have a knack for indulging in various schemes that can be somewhat less than holy, and tend to result in the priests inadvertently humiliating themselves in public.

When it comes to villains, no one out evils this amazing actor. After all, he’s been the nemesis of Harry Potter and one of the most ruthless Nazi Concentration Camp commandants of all time. But there is a lighter side to Fiennes, one few see outside his constant commercial push. He’s even taken a turn behind the lens, releasing his adaptation of Shakespeare’s little seen Coriolanus to immediate acclaim The Valley of the Fox.

Most significantly, the Sunningdale Agreement brought together political leaders from Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and the UK to deliberate for the first time since 1925.

With her combination of star appeal and award-winning performances, she has widely become known as one of the most famous British actresses. Sian Phillips-Although perhaps best known for her performance as the villainous and scheming Livia in the BBC series "I, Claudius," for which she won a BAFTA TV Award, Sian Phillips has also become famous through her other roles, such as a turn in the weirdly wonderful film "Dune." Starting from a very different position, Jenny Saville (b.1970) takes Freud's 183 anatomies of the human frame a step further, presenting her vast female nudes in Brobdingnagian close-up, distorted and sometimes deformed like mutants. By contrast, the Scottish painter Jack Vettriano (b.1951) has achieved enormous commercial success with his formulaic genre painting portraying nostalgic, if somewhat suggestive, man-meets-woman scenes, as exemplified by The Singing Butler (1992, Private Collection) The Wedding Girl.
