Laurence Fox: Woke Culture & Its Celebrity Hypocrites
This week's guest on "So What You're Saying Is..." is actor, singer & songwriter Laurence Fox, who made newspaper headlines several times last month for various comments criticizing "leftisim" at R.A.D.A., identity politics in the arts, and the hypocrisy of "woke" celebrities who support MeToo and ExtinctionRebellion movements whilst wearing revealing dresses and travelling on private jets.
Mr. Fox, part of the famous Fox dynasty of actors (which includes his father, James, and uncle, Edward), is perhaps best known for playing the leading role of DS James Hathaway in the Inspector Morse spin-off TV series "Lewis" (2006-2015) and from his roles in films such as Gosford Park and Elizabeth: The Golden Age. More recently, however, (in 2018), Mr. Fox joined the ITV series Victoria, playing the role of Lord Palmerston for its third series, which first aired in 2019.
A singer and songwriter, Laurence Fox's latest album includes a song ("Dead in the Eye") that targets politically correct woke culture, which he likens to a new religion.
