Although that quite is from Sherlock I sort of like to think that it applies to all Holmes's. It just fits so much! I can pretty much see every child version of every incarnation running around pretending to be a pirate. Some I imagine would do it differently than others (like I see Rathbone's kid Holmes being like I drew him here, kind of sad and lonely and thoughtful, yet still rather ADHD, just in small ways, like his hands always moving and frequently bouncing on his toes. While Jeremy Brett's kid Holmes would be running around all the time yelling and sliding down banisters and stabbing people with his toy sword. can you tell I've thought about this a lot? )
(Lol, yes, I can tell you've thought about it a lot! And that's just fine! It's the mark of a true fan! And a nice, active mind, too. ) B'AWWW, both of those descriptions are so cute... and that's a good compliment to all the actors that the one quote can fit all of them, I think. It means they've all played the same character well.
Thanks! Yeah, that's the Sherlock part I'm referring to, but the scene in The Woman in Green I am referring to is when the "bad lady" talks to Holmes about when she was a child she liked playing with toy boats, and he sort of get's this expression on his face that makes me think he used to play with toy boats as a kid too.
