Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on whether he has reservations about Shakepeare's genius] I'm a British actor, so of course you suckle on the milk of William Shakespeare from the moment that you decide to act. But no, I'll say the body of evidence to prove that William Shakespeare from Stratford wrote all of these works is flimsy. See more »

Trivia:

Left Wales at age 18 to study acting in London. See more »
