Very often, in interviews and pieces written for articles, I'm asked to list my Top Ten of this or that . actors, movies, novelists, books, heroic figures, and so on.
Because this is such a frequent and ubiquitous question, occurring in many countries across Europe, Asia , Africa, and Oceania, and asked by journalists, writers, interviewers, and reading fans of all ages, I decided to put some of the lists here, in this new section of the site, as a reference for anyone who'd like to know.
As time goes by (name of a song from one of my Favorite Movies), I'll add new lists. If you have a request for a new Top Ten List, just drop me an email (email@example.com) and I'll think it through and then add it to the growing lists.
I'll start this new section with 3 lists: Actors, Actresses, and Epic Books.
Because the number 10 is so arbitrary, and because there are so many astoundingly good actors and actresses, the lists for these categories stretch beyond the number 10. The fact is, I could include hundreds of actors and actresses in both lists, because I love the acting art with a rapturous passion, and I'm in awe of so many wonderfully talented actors. So, although I'm starting with these favorite names, I'll add new ones in the coming months, and the list will be more representative of my admiration for acting art and the artists who create it.
