Personal Quote:

Directors have repeatedly learned, to their cost, that the result isn't as rich or lively when you impose yourself consciously on an actor as when, by some other means, he manages to achieve the effect for himself.

Trivia:

He was awarded the CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in the 1965 Queen's New Year Honours List and a CH (Companion of Honour) in the 1998 Queen's Birthday Honours List for his services to Drama. See more »
