Gary Oldman is without a doubt one of the most versatile performers of his trade. In films such as “True Romance”, “Léon – The Professional” and “Air Force One” the Hollywood star inspired in the most diverse characters as a villain. He was almost unrecognizable as former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in The Darkest Hour, even winning the Oscar for Best Actor. And of course his roles in blockbuster series such as Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” trilogy, where he played Lt. Jim Gordon fought alongside Batman and in the Harry Potter series, where he played Sirius Black, the godfather of the titular character. The diversity of the British actor’s successful career can hardly be surpassed.
Currently Gary Oldman can be seen on the Apple TV+ streaming service in the spy series Slow Horses: A Case for Jackson Lamb, where he plays the always bad-tempered boss of a MI5 branch. His unit brings together a group of agents, all of whom have screwed up on previous missions but are nonetheless essential to the agency. Together, the team works to protect England from dangerous forces. The series is based on Mick Herron’s Jackson Lamb book series, which now has five volumes. Season 2 of Slow Horses premieres December 2 on Apple TV+. Shortly before the start of the new episodes, however, Oldman dropped a bomb that many of his fans should regret: Because the Oscar winner apparently wants to give up acting soon. When and for what reasons he wants to end his career, you will find out below Video:
