Maria Doyle Kennedy as Nina Bannister // Thursday the 12th
Nina Bannister in Thursday the 12th is one of my all-time favorite Maria Doyle Kennedy performances (sidenote: Katherine of Aragon will always be at the top of the list. If you’re watching Corp + Anam on TG4, you’ll see why Mairéad Mhic Iarnáin is also on my list, especially when you get to episodes 3 &4). I don’t know how she always manages to look so beautiful when she’s playing the unhappy wife, and those amazing blue eyes of hers glisten with tears throughout. The scene in the therapist’s office (last gif) was the highlight of the movie for me. I feel no shame in admitting that I was an absolute wreck the first time I saw it.
