Marbella becomes part of the legendary film star Cary Grant
Britain’s ITV channel has commissioned Fresco Film to shoot this four-part mini-series about the actor’s life which stars Jason Isaacs.
Who’s Cary Grant? Let me tell you: Cary Grant had many attributes: a seductive smile that had no rival in Hollywood at all. He was also attractive, gallant and with charming style, Cary Grant (1904-1986), with his suits as impeccable as his hair, captivated generations of viewers. The absolute king of sophisticated comedy was Hitchcock’s favourite white-gloved thief.
Born Archibald Alexander Leach, or Archie to his friends, and that is the title of the four-episode miniseries which is being filmed on the Costa del Sol this month for British channel ITV about the life of the legendary star. The crew departed Malaga by November before moving to Marbella as a 1960s Hollywood alternative. Jason Isaacs, remembered by fans of the Harry Potter saga for his role as the dark Lucius Malfoy, plays the charming Cary Grant at the height of his career. After his glory and a difficult and impoverished childhood with a father who didn’t love him and told him: “Your mother is dead”, moving between his origins as a vaudeville actor in his home country from the age of 14. Young Archie eventually finds out she is in a psychiatric facility.
Created by Jeff Pope, this production delves into lesser-known aspects of the actor’s life. His childhood shaped his life, struggling with shyness and lack of self-confidence. He is a character that leads to permanent failed marriages, and seeking his help led him to LSD
