It’s four years since I last interviewed John Hurt on stage. This coming weekend I’ll have the chance to do it again as part of the new Derby Film Festival. I’ll be in conversation with this prolific and charming actor on Saturday, May 10. Can’t wait. And after John there’s Phil Davis, the actor and director who Daniel Day Lewis described as the best actor in the world (yes, he really did). The following weekend is Fantastiq, now part of DFF, with guest appearances by Waris Hussein, who directed the very first Dr Who story in 1963, John (Twins of Evil) Hough and scriptwriter extraordinaire Michael (House of the Long Shadows) Armstrong. All good stuff with Waris and Johnny H being interviewed by yours truly. Come along if you can.
John Hurt in Derby. And me.
