Veteran actor Christopher Plummer who stepped in as a hasty replacement for a disgraced Kevin Spacey to play J Paul Getty has been nominated in the Golden Globes for best supporting actor for his performance in Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World. Scott is also nominated for best director and Michelle Williams for best actress. It had finished shooting when he took over the role and isn’t yet released.
Born 13 December 1929 in Toronto, Canada, he’s had an illustrious career in serious theatre and in film, garnering him many awards, including the Sound of Music (which he loathed).
He has a lively Sun Mars in Sagittarius with Venus also in Sagittarius in a charming opposition to Jupiter squaring onto filmic Neptune. Sagittarius can be a well-read and thoughtful sign which would be born out by his meticulous Mercury Saturn in Capricorn in a creative trine to Neptune. He’s got a Taurus Moon, perhaps in an Earth Grand Trine, so it’s a Fire Earth chart, giving him formidable energy.
He’s on his third Saturn Return before the end of this year, so should be hanging up his dancing shoes. But he looks likely to continue for a while yet. At the Golden Globes on January 7th tr Jupiter Mars in Scorpio is within a whisker of being trine his Pluto, so he’ll be in with a shout. Though with a couple of less friendly influences as well. Tr Jupiter will continue to boost his influence through 2018; and even better when it crosses his Sagittarius planets in 2019.
