Charles ... Bronson and the Ironies of Acting?

Tom Hardy as Charles Bronson
Tom Hardy is one of my favourite actors and I wrote about discovering the movie 'Bronson' after a puzzling dream I had years ago that lead me to watch the Tom Hardy movie -
"Bronson is a 2008 British biographical crime drama film co-written and directed by Nicolas Winding Refn and starring
Tom Hardy as Michael Peterson, known from 1987 as
Charles Bronson.
The film follows the life of this notorious prisoner, known for violent attacks against other prisoners, guards, and governors in prison; protests, armed robbery, and art.
He was renamed Charles Bronson by his fight promoter, for his bare-knuckle fighting years.
Born into a respectable middle-class family, Peterson became known as one of the United Kingdom's most dangerous prisoners.
Because of his violence, Bronson was repeatedly put into isolation or solitary confinement, which likely contributed to his emotional problems."
I guess Prince Charles meeting Tom Hardy is as close as we will get to Charles meeting Charles:-)
#1, #6, or a free man?-)
Notorious UK inmate Charles Bronson whistled ‘The Great Escape’ theme before allegedly assaulting prison governor
"‘The Great Escape’ is based on a real-life World War II prisoner of war breakout in Germany. Ironically, the 1960s’ movie starred the Hollywood actor Charles Bronson.
After being restrained, Bronson told police officers he wanted to attack Docherty because the governor had “disrespected his wife”.
The criminal married TV actress Paula Williamson at Wakefield prison last November, the court heard.
