Jacqueline Pearce
Spaceresearcher
Hello all, just wanted to share this terrific interview with you that I hadn't seen before. Youtube certainly is a wonderful archival tool.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBP0cHkScPw

Watching this interview helped explain how effortlessly Jacqueline could portray the character of Servalan and continues to do so. A lot of the mannerisms of Servalan are pure extensions of herself. (I'll confess I find her voice so spell bindingly incredible. It just draws me in and I want to hear everything Jacqueline has to say).

There is a wealth of great behind the scenes information here to fellow fans and it's great to hear Jacqueline's thoughts on the times of Blakes 7. In the recent autobiography 'From Byfleet To The Bush'(well worth reading and copies may still be available from right here at Horizon as well), there isn't a lot on Blakes 7 for some rather unfortunate reasons, so it this interview was a real treat to see and I'm very grateful to Guybo30 for posting this.

Jacqueline is so well spoken, it's poetry just to have the privilege of hearing her.

LOL. I loved her statement that the story should be more about the characters rather than someone standing by a console saying: "Standard by 10, which I found very boring.". LOL.

I found it really cute how Jaqueline put her hair in a bun, so as to give that classic Servalan look for the let's face it predominantly Blakes 7 fan audience of this interview.

Jaqueline raises a very important point on this whole battle of the sexes and womens liberation and that is the rift that it creates as opposed to uniting men and women which I agree is a far more noble cause and ideal worth striving for. After seeing the recent Nelson Mandella film, his message that people learn to hate, but people can learn to love and love comes more naturally to the human spirit than hate springs to mind. Jacqueline is someone who to me shares the best traits of all great people. The desire to encourage love. As Jaqueline declares 'Love is the ultimate power'.

Wow, that's an interview to cherish, might have to save a copy of that one and put it with Jacquelines autobiography.

Amazingly there's also another interview as Jacqueline sat on another panel that very weekend.

What a treat, enjoy.

Hello all, I was most excited to see a certain actress listed in this collection:

https://en.wikipe...hakespeare

I've always wished I could see Measure for Measure with Jacqueline as Mariana.

I'll confess I've never really enjoyed Shakespeare's works, but do enjoy the language of that period.

Who knows with all those plays, maybe it might just change my mind. It's a shame Alec Guinness or James Earl Jones couldn't have been involved(former turned down a role and the later wasn't allowed due to a kafuffle about only English and Irish actors being allowed to take on the roles).

Still there's a host of amazing actors to found here and I've never seen any of these productions before so it could be very interesting indeed.

We've seen the entire output of these late 70's early 80's Shakespeare plays, including the play Measure for Measure with Jac Pearce. There is a veritable panoply of stars in them and often they're quite good. The one exception I can remember is Merry Wives of Windsor. It was marred by the fact that either the director had no idea about how to stage Shakespeare, or else they were very pressed for time and went on one take throughout the thing. I also have 4 of the accompanying booklets for the plays, including Measure for Measure. Jac did herself proud.

Note: We found all the BBC Shakespeare plays on NetFlix and they are probably available on other sites. It may be prudent to search them out. There is also a 'speed-reading' version of Hamlet out there somewhere with Gareth Thomas in it. It comes in at 2 hours (Ken Branagh Hamlet is 4 hours) and even though dear Gareth is in it, it is not recommended as they chopped the poor play to pieces.

Here are a few photos from The Shakespeare Plays: Measure for Measure copyright 1979, BBC TV.

Top photo: Christopher Strauli as Claudio and Yolande Palfrey as Juliet
Bottom photo: Tim Pigott-Smith as Angelo, Kevin Stoney as Escalus, Kenneth Colley as The Duke, and Jacqueline Pearce as Mariana

Yolande Palfrey played Veron, Kasabi's daughter in Pressure Point and Kevin Stoney was Ardus in Animals and Joban in Hostage and of course, Jac as Servalan.

Many thanks BradPaula, it gives me an idea of what to expect and by the sounds of it, I might just grab Measure for Measure on it's own from somewhere.

Thanks for the photos. It looks like they did a great job of capturing the period.
 
BradPaula
You are most welcome, Spaceresearcher. We're big Shakespeare fans- having seen all his plays in various versions on video and a few in theatres. We've toured the Globe in London and seen Steven Pacey in King Lear in New York- yes, we're Shakespeare nerds.

Getty Images have some great photos of JP. Check out this first one from 1968 in particular, and make sure you maximise the window to full screen:

Click! A stunning visual.

And your bonus pic... look at the clarity! Click!

And a heap more of JP! Click! (Keep going past the group of girls to see more of Jacs with Jerry Lewis.)

Excellent photos, Joe. Thanks for sharing. There were a few of them I had never seen. Wonderful.

Jacqueline Pearce was always a ravishingly beautiful woman. Classic features and such beautiful skin and hair. She fitted the sixties look to a T.

I might also add, I actually watched that movie she was in with Jerry Lewis, years ago. It was the act of a true fan, I detest Jerry Lewis. As I recall JP was the only thing I liked about it.

If you've read her autobiography, she wasn't too fond of him either.
