Personal Quote:

[on working with Maggie Smith] The greatest moment of all was her on set. She said, 'Would you mind if you change the order of the phrase?' Maggie Smith asking me if I could change a line, asking politely, using my name! 'That one' she calls people. She rules. She literally and figuratively rules. We are all her slaves. See more »

Trivia:

Met wife-to-be Thandiwe Newton on the set of In Your Dreams (1996), a feature that he scripted for BBC television. See more »
