And finally, a Happy Birthday flashback shout-out to Sir Laurence Olivier, who was born on this day in 1907!

Olivier, who passed away in 1989, is considered one of the greatest British actors, directors and producers in entertainment history. Known for his film adaptations of Shakespeare's Henry V, Hamlet and Richard III, Olivier also acted in more than 120 roles onstage, including Macbeth, Romeo, Uncle Vanya and more. He was also a prolific film and television actor. Over the years, he was nominated for twelve Oscars (with two wins for Hamlet in 1948); he also won five Emmy Awards, three Golden Globes and a BAFTA. Olivier was the founding Artistic Director of the Old Vic, followed by the National Theatre Company in 1963. The Olivier Awards -- the West End's equivalent of the Tonys -- are named after him.
