  1. When I was appearing in RICHARD II and the North American premiere of Edward Bonds THE WOMAN at Stratford, Canada a fellow actor I had worked with in Macbeth prior to Stratford brought me a published copy of Glen Byam Shaw’s prompt book on the Olivier/ Leigh MACBETH ..I had seen this manuscript copy previously and found so many interesting approaches that Olivier instituted into his character…I knew it had to be brilliant using them myself , it enhanced the power and dynamics that should succeed in playing this great role.
