RIP Sam Shepard

Richard Armitage studied “A Lie of the Mind” while in his second year at LAMDA. Apparently, it was not one of his more memorable performances. I wonder if he played Jake. Coincidentally, this is the only Sam Shepard play I’ve ever seen, back in the 1990s, and I don’t have a very clear memory of it. Maybe it’s time for me to learn a bit more; Shepard is considered one of the great playwrights of U.S. theater in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and there will probably be a number of revivals this year.

  1. For me he was one of this actors I always loved to watch but didn’t know much about. And I will miss to stumble over his face on the (big) screen :/


  2. I first noticed him in Völker Schlöndorff’s Homo Faber. The film got mixed reviews but I liked it and Shepard’s acting (as well as Julie Delpy’s ) was really good.


  3. Thunderheart for me. I really like that movie from years ago. Graham Greene is in it too.
