Personal Quote:

[on his upcoming film Attack on Darfur (2009)]: I'd say this is... this was the most impossible movie I've ever... ever made. But it was also impossible not to make it. It was impossible not to be involved, because of what it is.


Worked with Helen Mirren twice in the same year. He appeared with her in Some Mother's Son (1996) and Prime Suspect 5: Errors of Judgement (1996). See more »
