Kenneth, I have to give you great credit in Wild Wild West. Your part was perfect for that movie. You hit it right on the nose. What a great actor you are. You were very ingenious in that movie. GREAT GREAT GREAT

Genius, totally genius. I wouldn't have gotten through high school Shakespeare quite as well without drooling over him. Not to mention that he spends a good chunk of Frankenstein shirtless.

he is brilliant. each of his movies are great!

Kenneth Branagh adapted on cinema some of the best adaptations of the work by William Shakespeare. I´d especially enjoied his comedy Too much ado about nothing . And his definitive version of Hamlet. It´s imposible to superate his adaptation. He was a genious of the present playing the work of a genious of the past.

Kenneth you are a fantastic actor and my favorit actor.

Heather COIDMay 3, 2009

All the Coid relatives have blue eyes! Emiliano think you have one too many greats and he was a Tinsmith! Emiliano who are you ?and yours. Love Kenneth by the way he`s a far out cousin my father was Rainey Coid named after Fulton Maquire`s daughters husband I think!

rhianna :)Feb 18, 2009

MiffyAug 25, 2008

I enjoyed reading about who K B has dated . But after Alicia you failed to mention Michelle Varney? Civil Servant from Nottingham.

Emiliano CoidJul 29, 2008

Kenneth Branagh`s great great great grandfather was Fulton Maguire from County Antrim, occupation "Tinsmith"

Some details are wrong here: the brilliant Branagh has BLUE eyes, not brown, and he`s closer to a blond-brown.
