Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I don't where it came from and how these things evolve. I haven't been and I am totally certain that I will not be asked to be the next Doctor Who (2005). If I was an actor who was really longing to play Doctor Who, then this would be torturous, but it's a programme I've never watched, so I don't even really know what it is. See more »

Trivia:

Was announced he would star in the title role of William Shakespeare's "Hamlet", opposite Clare Higgins as "Gertrude", at the National Theatre, London, UK, for Autumn 2010. See more »
