Personal Quote:

It had been a long time since I'd read a script as good as this, and I was really impressed by how Allan [Allan Cubitt] gets into the psychology of his characters. See more »

Trivia:

Starring in a Zinnie Harris version of Henrik Ibsen's "A Doll's House", at the Donmar Warehouse Theatre in London. See more »
