Defending Saffron Burrows for £100

Theatre bloggers Ben Yeoh (see and Krazy Kritic (see are having a debate.

Krazy contends Saffron Burrows can’t act and that too many celebrities get cast because of fame and looks, not talent.

Ben doesn’t necessarily contest this, but offers explanations and thoughts on the matter, and reserves judgement on Saffron as he has seen her in anything.

So, to extend the debate, Krazy has offered £100 to the best defence of Saffron’s acting to really see if anyone thinks she is any good.

Do you know anyone who would come to Saffron’s defence? Spread the word.

    Dear Ben

    Thanks for spreading the word. Thought I’d just come over to say Hi! for a moment to the folks on your site. Since yesterday I’ve met up with my dear friend H, once again fine comedienne and trouper of many years standing. She too had seen Some Girls and – sad to report Ben – unprompted, had to concur with Krazy’s judgement. That’s another thumbs down. That’s three Ben. Things are not looking rosy for Saffron. A bit of a black day. In fact, I should imagine Saffron’d be looking a little green around the gills with our survey so far. But let’s not despair too soon. Maybe there’s some knight in shining armour out there, ready to defend her talent.
