Personal Quote:

I can't think of anyone who was more loved and admired at the National than John. We've all lost count of the number of shows he did here - and he brought to all of them warmth, wit and an absolute dedication to the truth. He was a superb actor - one of those whose talent and skill make the English theatre pre-eminent. And he was a marvellous man. (On the death of John Normington) See more »

Directed 3 actors in Oscar-nominated performances: Nigel Hawthorne (Best Actor, The Madness of King George (1994)), Helen Mirren (Best Supporting Actress, The Madness of King George (1994)), and Joan Allen (Best Supporting Actress, The Crucible (1996)). See more »
