Q. Did your interpretation of Clive bear any resemblance to
a young Michael Caine?
A. No, the thought did pass through my mind, but due to the
fact that of the forty million Michael Caine impersonators currently
walking the planet, mine would rate very very low, I didnt.
Q. Theres a wonderful moment when the whole company
does a Nazi salute to the audience, is it easy for both of you
to act bad Shakespeare?
DM. I didnt have any trouble finding a way in.
MC. Me neither, I did very well I thought. One of the reasons
I did this was because I thought that to do bad Richard III would
be such a laugh.
Q. How difficult was it to be surrounded by the Sir Michaels
(Caine and Gambon)
A. I was so far out of my depth there was nothing to do except
concentrate all the time. Also, if I got nervous, a thing that
would get you through it is the fact that everybody else around
you would look after you because they're so experienced and so
relaxed that they make it easier for you.
Sir Michael: I remember when I was a young, very nervous
actor, an assistant came up to me and said, Why are you
nervous? Every single person you see in this room is absolutely
dedicated to making you look good on screen, thats what
were here for, to make you look good on screen, so what
the hell are you nervous about? It still didnt work!
Q. Did you enjoy dressing up?
DM. Yes, I love dressing up. As long as I dont
have to go to the shop. I had a great time, yes. Its what
stopped me from being nervous, because I had to concentrate on
being a different character.
Q. Were you tempted to stay in costume and go out to see the
A. Err, no, I have a life.
Q. Do people treat you differently when you go back home and
how do you see youre career going?
A. Im not aware of being treated differently, and as
for my career, I never really looked upon it as a career. As Michael
said, I think its more a question of the phone ringing,
but I dont hang around for the phone calls.
Q. Dylan, would you like to pursue more movies?
A. As I said before, thats really not up to me, it is
a question of getting the call.
