Znamenite uloge

Sir Alec Guinness, CH, CBE (2. april 1914 – 5. august 2000) bio je Oscarom i brojnim drugim prestižnim priznanjima nagrađeni engleski glumac koji se smatra jednim od najvećih dramskih umjetnika 20. vijeka. Slavu je stekao u klasičnim Ealing komedijama, a potom u raskošnim historijskim spektaklima, često pod režijom Davida Leana. Najpopularnija uloga mu je bio lik Obi Wan-Kenobija u prvoj trilogiji Ratova zvijezda.

Privatni životUredi

Guinness se oženio umetnicom, spisateljicom i glumicom Merulom Salaman 1938. godine; godine 1940. dobili su sina, Matthewa Guinnessa, koji je kasnije postao glumac.

U njegovoj biografiji, Alec Guinness: The Unknown, Garry O'Connor kaže da je Guinness bio uhapšen i kažnjen novčanom kaznom zbog homoseksualnih odnosa u javnom toaletu u Liverpoolu, 1946. godine. Guinness je izbegao publicitet tako što se policiji i sudu predstavio kao "Herbert Pocket", što je ime lika koji je tumačio u predstavi Great Expectations. Ovaj slučaj nije dospeo do javnosti sve do aprila, 2001, osam meseci posle njegove smrti.[1] Piers Paul Read, njegov zvanični biograf, sumnja da se ovaj incident zaista desio i veruje da se radi, zapravo, o Johnu Gielgudu, za koga je poznato da je bio uhapšen u to vreme. Bez obzira na to, Read potvrđuje da je Guinness bio biseksualan.[2]
