Words from Ian McKellen
Miranda Marshall (Lillian Howes) joined us for this production – she read fortunes from palms and waiting for our entrance behind the flats of the scenery, she forecast that I was going to be a very successful actor one day. I didn’t believe her, partly because my only ambition was to become as good an actor as possible. I wasn’t looking much beyond my apprenticeship at the Belgrade Theatre.
