Sir Trevor Nunn
Did You Know?
[on Michael Jackson's interest in starring as 'Peter Pan'] I described our production, in which all the children's parts had been played by adult actors. He bounded across the room, his eyes full of tears, he knelt down in front of me, his hands on my knees, and he said, 'Could I play Peter, is it too late?'.
He was awarded the CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in 1978 and Knight Bachelor of the Order of the British Empire in the 2002 Queen's Birthday Honors List for his services to the Theater.
