Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

It is said that those who talk so much on the stage shouldn't talk too much in private. No artist should talk at all, he should let his work speak for him.

Trivia:

Played most of the Shakespearean leading roles and notable for his portrayal of Shylock in "The Merchant of Venice." His Othello has been deemed one of the most definitive--alongside Paul Robeson and Laurence Olivier, despite the fact that he spoke the lines with a thick Czechoslovakian accent. See more »
