Patrick Stewart turned his back on Hollywood to return to England:

  • Sir Patrick Stewart (1/2) HARDtalk, 14.08 min;
  • Sir Patrick Stewart (2/2) HARDtalk, 10.30 min: Patrick Stewart will be instantly recognisable to millions around the world as Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the USS Enterprise. Or as Professor Charles Xavier of X-Men. But after 17 years in Hollywood, he’s turned his back on it to return to England and to venues like London’s Young Vic – to his first love – Shakespeare and the theatre. In his latest role he’s even playing Shakespeare. So why choose small audiences in venues like this over the glamour of Hollywood?
