Morpheus on… Keir Dullea

In films, an actor or actress often has to AGE. At which point, in come the make-up and prosthetic artists – and they almost always get it totally WRONG.

What I mean is – if the career of the actor or actress manages to endure, when they actually REACH the age they were portraying all those years ago, they look NOTHING like their made-up self.

However Keir Dullea is an exception. You will remember how, at the end of “2001: A Space Odyssey” (1968) his character Bowman goes through several stages of ageing – finally emerging as a foetus (the “Star Child”).

Well, two stages earlier, he is portrayed as a man in his mid-seventies.

And right now (2010) he has REACHED that age – and, in his rare contemporary film appearances, he looks JUST like made-up self in “2001…”
