Actor Kenneth Branagh enjoys doing yoga even though he started practicing it late. “I’m a man of certain age who’s come to enjoy yoga. I came to it later in life, but lately, it’s a necessary thing,” Branagh told People Magazine.
“I love walking my dog. I have a little Jack Russell who runs my life. I talk to him; I train him,” he added. Branagh, who portrays Detective Hercule Poirot in the new film adaptation of the Agatha Christie’s 1943 novel Murder on the Orient Express, also said that it took him six months to get his mustache into an ideal shape for his character.
“(It took) six months of work to work out what’s the volume, what’s the shape and how do we put it on,” Branagh said.
“It’s a great mustache because it almost hides your entire mouth,” Branagh explains. “So I recommend this to sports coaches. If you want to not even have the problem about lipsync readability, grow a Poirot mustache and you can get away with quite a lot.”
Murder on the Orient Express is a mystery drama which will be helmed by Kenneth Branagh himself. The film also stars Tom Bateman, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Johnny Depp and Judi Dench in pivotal roles. The film was released in US on November 10 and has garnered mixed reviews from both the critics and audience.
Kenneth Branagh was last seen in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk which was based on the second world war.
