Issue preview: Introducing The Brit Pack, a new generation of British actors

From interviews with some of film’s most seasoned actors to a style shoot with Dominic Cooper, take a look inside our Actors Special

Back in January, we rolled cameras on our annual Actors Special — scouring screens big and small for the six most promising young actors in Britain. And, from thesps taking Netflix by storm to performers stepping into leading roles for the first time, we found them.

And we didn’t stop there. From Pierce Brosnan to Michael Douglas, we also turned to a select handful of seasoned actors for their life advice. Not to mention buttoning Dominic Cooper into the latest styles for this issue’s fashion shoot. We also amassing a spotlight-stealing array of products in our Portfolio section, from houses featured in films to a truly big-budget yacht. It’s a show-stopper of an issue.

Whiskey, watches and workwear makes it into our Portfolio

In this issue’s Portfolio, we explore why watch manufacturers have caught a case of the blues, and focus in on Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak ‘Jumbo’. Elsewhere we get behind the wheel of Bentley’s latest Continental GT Convertible and step inside houses that have featured in Blade Runner and The Godfather, among others.

When it comes to style, we’ve explored the best new trends in workwear — and discovered the ideal New York hotel for your next business trip. And then, before weighing anchor on superyacht Inception, we sing the praises of sherry and explain why whisky should be your next big investment.
