Meet Tom Hanks

Admittedly, this is the most ambitious item on the list. When I was thinking about the last few things to put on my list I started to get more adventurous – and perhaps a tad ridiculous! Sometimes we have to reach a little further from the realistic, and I certainly have!

Tom Hanks is my favourite actor and this is not just down to the many, many great performances he has given us.

He comes across as a gentleman –  a dying breed! You see him in interviews and he strikes the balance of being polite, entertaining and funny – a host/interviewer’s dream.

I will not list all my top Tom Hanks films, but these are a few of my favourites:

 

You’ve Got Mail is my feel-good film. It lifts me up if I’m down or feeling unwell. The concoction of Tom Hanks, New York City scenes and book stores is perfection for me.

Philadelphia is the Tom Hanks film I urge people to watch. It is a film and performance that stays with you.

The Terminal is a film with such a simple concept and simple format but which gives you so much.
