School Of Cool #125: How to get the world smiling like Dawn French

on in Entertainment

Because acting like a celeb doesn’t have to cost the Earth… 

Dawn FrenchSo, who is she?
The hilarious Dawn French is best known for starring in and writing French and Saunders, along with comedy partner-in-crime Jennifer Saunders. We also can’t hear that voice without picturing ol’ Geraldine Granger from The Vicar of Dibley. She’s been nominated for seven BAFTA Awards and also won a Fellowship BAFTA with Jennifer Saunders.

Impressive. What else do I need to know?
On TV, French has kissed Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, George Clooney, Gordon Ramsay, Michael Bublé and Hugh Grant. Lucky lady!

So, she’s a cool lady, but why is she a Global Cool lady?
We’ve always liked Dawn French and we were sad to hear of her split from Lenny Henry after 24 years of marriage. But we were happy when we heard the TV comedienne had found love again and gotten hitched to new partner Mark Bignell earlier this year. We were even more happy for her when we heard that the wedding and reception took place at an eco-hotel in Cornwall which prides itself on recycling and maintaining its green ethos. Is The Vicar of Dibley greenest of them all..? No, no, no, no, no, no, no… yes!

And here’s a lovely little Christmas-themed Vicar Of Dibley scene for you. Well, it is Christmas after all…

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/
Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
