Adrian Mole is 41

My favorite fictional person in the world, Adrian Albert Mole, turns 41 today. With millions of books sold and a new movie in the works (not to mention the radio play, stage play, and television adapatations), Adrian would no doubt enjoy the attention and the celebrity. Assuming of course he could stop moping long enough to notice.

  • Adrian Mole [Wikipedia]
  • “The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 133/4” [IMDb]: The hilarious 2-series adapation of the first two books, “The Secret Diary of” and “The Growing Pains of”. Julie Walter played Pauline in series 1, while pop star Lulu took over the role in series 2.
  • The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole [IMDb]: A big-screen adaptation. Though there’s been no update to the IMDb entry for the feature film since November 2007, the film is still due to hit theaters later this year. Claire Kilner (The Wedding Date, How to Deal) is attached to direct an adaptation by Bradley Wood.

PS: Many happy returns to Adrian’s creator, and my favorite living writer, Sue Townsend, who was generous enough (or perhaps lazy enough? kidding!) to give Adrian her birth date.
