Richard still fears he’ll be too old (as well as too tall) to play the tragic monarch. Unless it takes an awfully long time to come to fruition, I would still like to see him tackle the role. Maybe it’s just my shallow desire to see him with S3 Guy hair again? I just know he could make us believe.
As I have mentioned before, I am a fan of Josephine Tey’s excellent The Daughter of Time, which is one of the works that inspired the actor named after Richard III to delve deeper into the much-maligned monarch’s true story. I confess I still have to read The Sunne in Splendour (it’s on my Kindle with about 1,000 other books), but I am sure those who have read/are reading the book have their own ideas about other roles Mr. A might undertake if he didn’t play the lead.
Edit: Here’s an additional article and programme note of interest for my UK readers:
