Who wants to make me a Hollom icon?|
God, that last scene with him made me cry. Just him saying goodbye to Blakeney, and then the look on poor little Blakeney's face while he watched him sink...
And you know, I think his suicide was, according to his worldview, an act of complete courage and altruism. He believed he was cursed, that it was somehow his fault that the ship and the crew were having such terrible luck, and that his death would change things... so he acted on it. Poor man...

If there were any shots of him in the trailer for me to cap I'd be happy to.
I thought Ingleby did a spectacular job.
I thought Blakeney was superb with all of the things put on his place by mad adults - fancy Hollom putting the witnessing of his death on a child (which I suppose simplifies it far too much, really)? Incredible ;)
However - very, very sad. I liked Hollom very much and, even though I anticipated something like that for him (even after that "fab" pep talk of sorts from Aubrey), it was still a shock.
Poor Hollom ...
Wow, this is turning into a war of icons! Hehe. Mine's kind of squished, though.
I liked Hollom, too. I know how he felt. That's what it was like at school.
I can see this being my new LotR-scale obsession. Raise your hand all those in favour of Jack/Stephen!
If you're looking for pics, go to the website, find a good image, press Alt+Print Scrn and paste the pic into paint or another image program. Select the required section and create!
I know this is a reasonably old post by now - but I got you a Hollom icon if you want it: click
It was the best of all the pictures of him around, really ;)
