“I feel privileged to be part of the Donmar West End season and to be directed by the company’s Artistic Director Michael Grandage on Hamlet. It was Ken who brought me to this project and with his support and guidance, as one of the greatest Hamlets of all time, and with Michael directing, I can’t imagine a better scenario for me, as an actor, to undertake the role.” - Jude Law
