Personal Quote:

My greatest fear is losing touch with God. I am in constant dialogue with Him. My grandfather was a priest and I served at the altar as a little boy. I have a long history of being on the cusp of Catholicism. I pray a lot, especially when those fogs of life descend. It helps me to keep a positive attitude in a negative world. - 15 April 2003, Times Online See more »


He has portrayed both Edward VIII and his younger brother and successor George VI. He played the former in The Woman He Loved (1988) and the latter in Cambridge Spies (2003). See more »
