We call this film the edgier sister of Mary Poppins. It’s not as sweet but its saltiness and dark disciplining of children is what made it such a hit. If you muted the entire film and watched it in silence, you’d just know it was British. It’s just one of those things, don’t question us!
What have the cast of Nanny McPhee been up to since causing chaos on our screens back in the day?
Simon Brown (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) – THEN
The oldest child of the Brown bunch, Simon seems to possess every quality each of his siblings are known for. He’s smart, mischievous, charming and naturally, the ringleader of the group. His stern poker face coupled with his anger made for a very memorable scene. Know which one we’re talking about? The one where Simon yells at his dad after finding out about his thing with Mrs. Quickly. We were as shocked as Colin Firth when little Simon yells “you never listen!”.
Thomas is still bagging roles in big productions nowadays. If you watch Game of Thrones (who doesn’t?), you’ll remember him as Jojen Reed. He also voiced Ferb in Disney’s Phineas and Ferb for a solid eight years! He’s in Maze Runner: The Death Cure and currently filming Dragon Rider! He doesn’t seem to age though, does he?!
