I'm noticing more and more recently that though actors can play characters who are great friends in one book/series/film, they can also play each other's enemies in another...take the example of David Suchet and Hugh Fraser who play the fantastic duo of Poirot and Hastings in the television series...



...but play both Napoleon and Wellington respectively (though in two totally different films, I have to say!) who as we all know were historically enemies:




[They also look eerily similar to the real life historical people they were portraying...O_O]

As Hercule Poirot would say: 'Interesting. Very interesting.'

Though it's just past the 18th now over here, just a post to commemorate the 195th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo which started in the late morning of Sunday, 18th June 1815.

Today's 18th June...(yep, this is going to be yet another random historical event-related post and yes, it's nearly the end of the 18th now)

It's the 194th anniversary of the famous Battle of Waterloo fought on the plains of Waterloo in Belgium between the Duke of Wellington, Prussia's Prince Blucher and Napoleon on 18th June 1815. Basically, this WAS the battle which decided the fate of Europe for the coming 100 years until 1914 and the advent of World War I.

*clears throat* Well, anyways...enough about that. Let's carry on, shall we? XD
