Nicolas Cages Dickensian English Christmas dreams come trueDecember 25th, 2007 - 6:01 pm ICT by admin
Washington Dec 25 (ANI): Nicolas Cage is set to fulfil his lifelong dream of celebrating a Dickensian Christmas by spending the holidays in Bath, England.
The actor, a lifelong fan of author Charles Dickens, is shunning Hollywood
and heading for a winter retreat in the ancient English city.
“I’m taking everyone to England and I’ve never done that. I’m going to try and have a Christmas goose. I want to walk around Bath and see how they celebrate the holidays. I’ve always fantasised about that, Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.
“When I’m in Bath I feel like I’m walking around a snow globe. I’m in this contained beautiful historic universe and everybody’s really, really nice, he added.
Earlier this year, the Hollywood actor spent nearly 5 million pounds on a British castle.
“I’m always excited to meet people and say, ‘Are you Bathonian?’ I don’t need to use a car and I can walk. The architecture is magnificent and I feel like I’m in touch with the past and I feel like I’m time travelling, he said.
“I’m going to these other places and I’m learning something. It’s helping me grow. It will be the perfect DICkens Christmas.
“My wife and (son) Kal-El flew over a week ago and my eldest son, Weston, is flying over for Christmas, he added. (ANI)
