Elegant, alluring and one hell of a talented actress to boot, Emily Blunt is 27 today.
The first film I saw her in was 'My Summer of Love' in 2004, an experience comparable to watching Kate Winslet in 'Heavenly Creatures' a decade earlier, the Major New Talent Alarm blaring out in my head like in klaxon: WHOOP! WHOOP! WHOOP! STAR IN THE MAKING!
In both cases, it's been nice to be proved right. (If you're in any doubts about how iconic Emily Blunt is, by the way, I have a challenge for you: try finding a poster for 'The Wolfman' with Benicio del Toro on it.)
A glass is being raised to Ms Blunt at chez Agitation this evening, and a review of 'The Wolfman' is on the cards for tomorrow.
