Talk:Brian Cox (actor)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Why is it that we hold yet-another-actor in higher regard than the Brian Cox that's a particle physicist working on the biggest science experiment ever? Actors may give us cultural insight every once in a while (and that's being very generous) but the LHC will very likely redefine our understanding of the Universe. Surely a default ref to the disambiguation page is more balanced and in line with the "WikiPedia way"? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:21, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

if you have actually checked the page for both Brian Cox's neither include reference to the if anything there are treated equally. please remember this before you start ranting next time Penut510 (talk) 20:38, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

Is that really a photo of Brian Cox? It doesn't look at all like him... Andrew Levine (talk) 21:23, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Image problems[edit]

The picture of Brian Cox and Paula Sage is not right for Wikipedia. The image should only be of Brian Cox. Someone who is invested in this article should Photoshop out Paula Sage or post a different image that is depicts him alone. Cheers,ask123 (talk) 23:30, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

I opt for a new image. I doubt photoshopped images delivered as "real" would be improper on Wikipedia. --WPaulB (talk) 20:31, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Personal Life[edit]

Why is there no mention of his marriage to Nicole Ansari-Cox or their two children Orson and Torrin? Shouldn't that be added to the article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:14, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Soap? Makes no sense.[edit]

"instead ate the soap on camera" makes no sense. The context suggests it contained sugar, so how could it have been soap? Vaughan Pratt (talk) 06:28, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

Scots dialect roles[edit]

In the Shetland episode Raven Black he plays an old crofter and speaks Shetland dialect of Scots English. How authentic is such accent/speech for him? What other roles has he played speaking a Scots dialect?- (talk) 21:12, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
