The actor, author and artist talks to Sue MacGregor about his career and role in the National Theatre's production of Travelling Light. This recording is taken from a Platform event in the Lyttelton Theatre in February 2012.


Acting requires a wide range of skills, vocal, physical, imaginative, expressive, intellectual, intuitive, and work can demand different dialects, languages, accents, vocal control or body language, improvisation, observation and emulation, mime, and often dancing or stage combat. A stage actor will often be required to research around a character or a period of history. In an ever changing world it is a continually evolving profession. This collection aims to give an insight into what it is like to be an actor at the National Theatre.
