Fiona Shaw talks theatre

I love the five minute interview series on the BBC website (shame you can't embed them) and this one I particularly like as its with one of my favourite theatre actresses, Fiona Shaw.

Loved her in Mother Courage and All Her Children and the brilliant, brilliant London Assurance with Simon Russell Beale. (I'm also a bit of a Harry Potter fan, so I can't help but think of her as sour-faced Aunt Petunia).

In the interview she talks  a bit about her childhood in Ireland but then moves on to working in the theatre, the trust between actors and how comedy differs to straight drama.

I'm next seeing her in the Ibsen play John Gabriel Borkman over in Dublin at the Abbey Theatre where she will star opposite Alan Rickman. Yes I know Alan Rickman, how excited am I?
