Did You Know?
Young kids coming out of drama school don't want to go into theatre any more, they all want to be film or TV stars. And so when the RSC for example have to audition for a new production of Romeo and Juliet, it's always really hard playing or finding that whole group of young actors that can play those parts, because they're not interested any more.
He was nominated for a Laurence Olivier
Theatre Award in 2000 (1999 season) for Best Actor for his performance in "The Winter's Tale" at the Barbican Theatre.
