Quentin Crisp film

A new feature film on the life of legendary Quentin Crisp is being produced and I'm so excited to be a part of it. I was cast as a Drag Queen nightclub patron in some of the movie scenes. Quentin Crisp was a celebrated openly-Gay personality famous in the 70s through the 90s and passed away November 1999. He was a colorful, flamboyant and charming character and I have such fond memories of having fun with him at parties in the 90s. The new film is being called An Englishman in New York, which is also the title of the song Sing dedicated to him. Quentin is being played by actor John Hurt who also played Quentin in The Naked Civil Servant. John Hurt was also in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Also in the film is Cynthia Nixon from HBO's Sex in The City.
