Tennant as Hamlet

David Tennant’s starring role as Hamlet with the RSC is set to bring a vast new audience to Shakespeare, and there are pictures of him in the role in rehearsal on the Daily Mail website.


Apparently Tennant has said of the role – the holy grail of actors, and one also played by his Doctor Who predecessor Christopher Eccleston:

‘Hamlet is often regarded as the acme of acting to test yourself against, which isn’t a particularly helpful thought, to be honest.

‘Of course it is flattering to be asked to that role because of everything attached to it.

‘But once you get into rehearsal you have to relinquish thoughts like that and just try and tell the story.’

Production of Hamlet will run at the Courtyard Theatre in Stratford until November 15 2008 before moving to the Globe Theatre in London.
