Personal Quote:

[on working again with former Mamma Mia! (2008) cohort Stellan Skarsgard in )The Railway Man (2013)] It's very hard to look at Stellan and not see him in Lycra. Actually, the last time I'd seen him on a film set he was naked. So if there was a haunted look in my eyes, it wasn't because I was contemplating the war in Asia. It was because I'd seen horrors already beyond imagination. See more »

Trivia:

He appeared in three Best Picture Academy Award winners: The English Patient (1996), Shakespeare in Love (1998) and The King's Speech (2010). Geoffrey Rush also appeared in the latter two films. See more »
