Antony Holland performing St Mark’s Gospel

North Shore News
I appreciated Martin Millerchip’s Jan 14th NSN article ‘Journey to Jerusalem with Antony Holland. I too was immersed in the Anglican (CofE) world as a child, but disconnected, instead skiing religiously Sundays on the North Shore mountains. My interest in Antony Holland comes from watching his phenomenal acting in ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’.
I was not disappointed in Holland’s presentation of St. Mark’s Gospel who held the audience in the palm of his hands throughout the night. Holland is remarkably ‘the oldest actor in North America still playng leading roles’. If I have half as much energy when I am 91, I will be deeply grateful. As Millerchip fittingly commented, Holland’s ‘hard to resist, perhaps like Jesus’.
