Ben said to another young Hamlet....


この夏のベンが出演するドラマ『The Hour』で共演する、ベンのRADAの後輩でもあるJoshua Mcgrureという役者さん。まもなくグローブ座で上演の『Hamlet』に抜擢されたそうで、同じく23歳当時にハムレットを演じたベンに相談したところ…


- Joshua McGuire -
The newcomer, who was in Posh at the Royal Court last year while in his final year at Rada, tried to ask advice from another young Hamlet, Ben Whishaw, who played in Trevor Nunn's 2004 Old Vic production, but to no avail. McGuire stars alongside Whishaw in Abi Morgan's new BBC series The Hour, set in a 1950s broadcast newsroom, with Dominic West.

McGuire explains: "I said to him: 'Do you think I should do it?' He said: 'Of course you should.' I said: 'Any tips?' He said: 'I can't remember it.' I totally understand that. Once you've played a part, you put it in the bin. The feelings you have, especially when they are as intense as Hamlet's, you can't explain to anyone, unless you are currently doing it."

面白いことに、下のサイトでJoshuaが過去に演じたと思われる芝居のセリフが聞けるのですが、最初に出てくるのがベンも演じた『Mercury Fur』のElliotとしてのコックニー訛りのセリフが!色んなアクセントを操れる役者さんのようです。
