What was your favorite childhood movie? Who was your favorite movie character? I have a rather long list of childhood movies full of amazing memories, but there was something special about ‘Matilda’.
At the time, it was her ever-present “sunny disposition” and the will to just make it out of there. Now when I look back at it, I start thinking about the motifs the main villain of the movie had.
Ah, Miss Trenchbull – one of the greatest villains of my childhood. Playing that role must have been super-hard for the actress Pam Ferris.
She was raised in New Zealand and the UK but was actually born in Germany.
