Fun to watch
Soyons reconnaissants aux personnes qui nous donnent du bonheur; elles sont les charmants jardiniers par qui nos âmes sont fleuries. —Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
Tom Hiddleston reads from Shakespeare’s ‘thrilling’ first folio (x)
Speaking from the Chief Commoner’s Parlour, a mock Elizabethan room in the Old Library of the Guildhall in the City of London, actor Tom Hiddleston gazed in awe at the first folio edition of Shakespeare’s works.
Hiddleston stars in the Donmar Warehouse’s new production of Coriolanus, as the warrior-politician. The cast includes Birgitte Hjort Sørensen as his wife Virgilia and Mark Gatiss as Menenaus. Also in the cast are Hadley Fraser as Aufidius and Deborah Findley as Coriolanus’s terrifying mother Volumnia.
"I find it personally very thrilling in quite a sort of nerdy way to sit and hold these pages which were printed 400 years ago." said Hiddleston.
Coriolanus is directed by Josie Rourke and opens at the Donmar Warehouse on December 6. Tickets:0844 871 7624;donmarwarehouse.com
You want me to be completely honest?
I, always, have been terrified
of love. To slow dance with the bliss
and the prevailing chance of complete
misery. Knowing that, it will either
save me or it will cripple me.
For if there is one thing beautiful
in this crumbling world: It is love.
The curling of souls.
But god, if there is one thing
horrific in it, too,
than it is most surely loving
something with your entirety,
only to have it all vanish
away within the hint
of a second.
Great men are forged in fire. It is the privilege of lesser men to light the flame, whatever the cost.
