Philip Dodd talks to Mark Rylance, the former artistic director of the Globe. He has been called the greatest stage performer in the world and won awards on both sides of the Atlantic for his performance as Johnny ‘Rooster’ Byron in Jerusalem. But he made his name with Shakespeare, and in this extended conversation Philip Dodd examines Rylance’s passion for engaging with "original practice" versions of the Bard to challenging audience relationship with the action on stage, through to playing Shakespeare's most notorious villain.
