Derek Jacobi on The Bob Edwards Show

Filed under: Radio Today, Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 5:02 pm

I love actors. As someone who studied the art a few lifetimes ago, I love listening to actors discuss their process. In this interview originally aired in June of 2012, Derek Jacobi discusses his classical stage work, film roles, and of course what is probably his most famous role, the stammering title character in the BBC television production of I, Claudius.

From the introduction:

All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts. Those words from Shakespeare’s As You Like It apply to my guest today, Sir Derek Jacobi, one of the most celebrated and respected actors of our time. And while he’s performed all the great Shakespearean roles, Jacobi’s breakthrough came in 1976 when the BBC adapted two Robert Graves novels into a serial drama called I Claudius. He enjoyed more TV success as Brother Cadfael, a 12th century monk with a talent for solving mysteries. Derek Jacobi on his long and distinguished career for the full hour today.

Of course, script included below.
