Acting is a fine art and not as easy as it looks.
Tastes can vary, even the great Meryl Streep is not for everyone, as evidenced by Donald Trump claiming she’s “overrated”. One wonders if he’s squeezing in the second season of Big Little Lies around rounds of golf. If not, his loss.
Emmerdale is not a favourite soap opera for many people in this country although it did provide several classical moments in Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson’s seminal sitcom, Bottom. For that we should be eternally grateful.
Comedy and Emmerdale might make unlikely bedfellows and yet they’re back together doing their thing with a clip that’s gone viral of an astonishing moment from a recent episode containing some of the worst acting ever seen on the big or small screen.
For future reference, the true pinnacle of acting is this double take from Marie Dressler in Dinner at Eight.
