Welcome to the Compendium Welcome to the Compendium, created by Ngoc in 1997, chock full of more info about Kenneth Branagh than you ever imagined existed. To quote Ngoc's original intro: "the guy acts, he sings, he dances, he directs, he writes, he channels Bill Shakespeare on a regular basis, he's an awfully nice chap, and he's kinda cute. In the minor deity hierarchy, Kenneth Charles Branagh is one level below Joe Montana (the greatest quarterback of the greatest football team ever) and just above the guy who invented Pepsi".

He's also the Kenergizer, Kinetic Ken, Multi-tasKen, etc. etc. You get the picture... the Compendium runs along behind, in the trail of interviews, articles and photos, trying to grab as many as possible.

Enjoy!


Oh yeah, please read the all-important (so say my lawyers) disclaimer before proceeding.


Please note that Kenneth Branagh does not have a Facebook page or a Twitter account

Resistance is futile!
