Subject: 14.1034 An Actor on Hamlet
Comment:        Re: SHK 14.1034 An Actor on Hamlet

In the same vein, I interviewed actor Leon Ford a week or so ago about
his performance as Hamlet in the current production by Australia's Bell
Shakespeare Company. He's quite young, and had some interesting things
to say regarding Hamlet's age and his actions; he was unconvinced, for
example, of an Oedipal complex operating between Hamlet and his mother.

However much you agree or disagree with an actor's ideas on playing
Hamlet, it's interesting to hear the end results of the thought process
that they must go through to play the part.

If people are interested in reading the interview, it's at:

Cheers,
