Andrew Scott and Robert Icke
Here we’ve got ‘my man’ Andrew Scott again, this time because he was performing in Robert Icke’s version of Hamlet at the Almeda theatre. The play was a great success. Icke is with no doubt one of the most exciting theatre directors around and with an actor who exudes sweet intensity like Andres Scott, how could it not be a great success?! The brief was to have them both together and to maybe include a Hamlet prop – is it my lack of imagination or is there only one prop that is unmistakably Hamlet? Next time I might try bringing a ham omelet, call it Ham-let and give the play a new meaning.
