He was at the Television Critics Association (TCA) winter press tour in Pasadena, California, to talk about the film version of KING CHARLES III. KING CHARLES III began life as a stage play. It seems Shakespearean, dealing with the English throne and written by Mike Bartlett entirely in iambic pentameter, but in fact it deals with issues of present and future. The premise of KING CHARLES III is that Queen […]Read On »
