The stars of ‘Chariots of Fire’

Nicholas Farrell as Aubrey Montague.

Nigel Havers as Lord Andrew Lindsay.

Ian Charleston as Eric Liddell.

Ben Cross as Harold Abrahams.

And Daniel Gerroll as Henry Stallard.

Those are the five famous actors, who played these athletes in the Oscar winning movie, “Chariots of Fire”. Besides Jesse Owens in “Race”, played by Stephan James. They all played as the true athletes in the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris, France. For they changed the Summer Olympic Games forever.

The 1936 Summer Olympic Games were scary when Hitler was watching everything, before WWII began, as that Jesse Owens was in that race. But these here are the finest winners, in the Summer Olympics. In all of it’s history.

Years later in 2012, to the opening ceremony of the Summer Olympics in London, the actors today must’ve been surprised to see Rowan Atkinson in his performance on that beach race. To that Oscar winning movie.

And as actors shall be remembered throughout film history, they as these racers, are like actual chariots of fire.
