Ewan McGregor! Fiona Shaw! Ian McKellen! Harold Bloom! James Earl Jones! Julie Taymor! Michael Boyd! Nicholas Hynter! Ruth Negga!

For their (excellent) documentary Muse of Fire, Giles Terera and Dan Poole interviewed loads of actors and directors about their experiences of and feelings about Shakespeare. Finally, they're starting to release those interviews! And there is hours of footage.

Sadly, it sounds like their hand was forced in releasing them early because they were hacked. But now that they have been released officially, we can all enjoy them!

Hopefully, they'll eventually release them all, which would include: Jude Law, Tom Hiddleston, Sir Derek Jacobi, Dominic West, Alan Rickman, Baz Luhrmann, Zoë Wanamaker, Jeremy Irons, Christopher Eccleston, Simon Russell Beale, Peter Hall, Melvyn Bragg, Toby Stephens, Frances Barber, Rory Kinnear, Dominic Dromgoole and Sandy Foster, amongst others.

Note: I haven't actually watched any of them through yet because my boss wouldn't have thought it was a legitimate reason to give me a day off. (Inconsiderate.) But if they aren't well worth a watch, I will eat my Complete Works.
