As she approaches her 62nd birthday next month, actress Lesley Manville has plenty to celebrate. She’s had an Oscar nomination for her performance in the hit film Phantom Thread and glowing reviews for her role with Jeremy Irons in the West End revival of Long Day’s Journey Into Night. And now she’s set to reprise her bittersweet portrayal of the widowed Cathy in the acclaimed comedy drama Mum, which returns to BBC2 for a second series this week.
When comic actor Warwick Davis was approached by songwriting duo Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins with a new musical and the offer to play the evil Lord Hector, it took him very little time, he says, to be won over. Davis played Hector in a charity performance at the Palladium but he’s not in the regular cast of Eugenius! now at Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Other Palace. He was there, though, with his family to cheer on proceedings at the show’s gala performance.
At nearly 85, Sheila Hancock is still evolving. “I’ve gone from grumpy to angry to downright confused,” says the veteran actress. “As you get older, you’re meant to become more positive, but I’m in danger of heading in the opposite direction. And no wonder when you look at the state of the world. “But, having said that, I do believe good can come out of bad. The Harvey Weinstein scandal, please God, is an example of that. Which is why I can say I look forward with hesitant hope.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
