Cherie Lunghi
   

Lunghitude is an unofficial fansite dedicated to the work of English actress Cherie Lunghi. It is a collaborative effort by three people - Steve, Nathalie, and Richard. Initially a number of us came together on the BBC Strictly Come Dancing message board under the C.L.A.S.S. and Cherie Fan Club threads. As well as discussing the dancing, and the content of the interviews that Cherie was giving in the media whilst a contestant,  we started to talk about Cherie’s appearances on TV, film and stage. It soon became apparent that she had a tremendous repertoire of performances to her name, but despite that her career was not really well documented on the web. Much of what was available, was either incomplete – or worse still inaccurate. When the BBC series ended and the message boards closed we moved across ‘en masse’ to greenfinch and continued our discussions there on a members only message board. It was then that the idea of the website was born.

Settling on the name and early days What else will you find here?

We quickly settled on a name thought up by Kristian (by poll and voting – Lunghitude won by a mile with over 50% of the votes). But then the hard work began……collating the information, checking it, rechecking it. Nowhere was there anything like a complete record of Cherie’s performances. Eventually though we’ve got there, with what we believe to be a complete record – although we might be missing one or two radio appearances and possibly an early theatrical performance!

As well as Cherie’s performances we also have:
-
Regular updates
-
A page dedicated to Cherie’s known other interests, the charities and causes that she regularly supports
-
A page of notable quotes, some amusing, but all very representative.
-
A catalogue of media interviews
-
A Gallery
- Members Forum
-
And of course Strictly!

Site aims

The aims of the site were possibly the easiest thing to come up with; they are to:

-
represent Cherie in a positive light on the web
-
provide periodic updates on future appearances
-
provide as complete a picture as possible of Cherie’s acting career
-
maintain Cherie’s absolute right to privacy.
The first three are self explanatory, but a word on the final one. We are not interested in ‘gossip’, ‘sensationalism’ or discussing Cherie’s personal life – if that’s your bag we are sure you can find other websites for those ‘specialisms’. Nor would we include anything to compromise Cherie’s right to privacy.
