Gambon A Life in Acting  

Gambon A Life in Acting $20.86 ex GST
$22.95 inc GST

Michael Gambon is a notoriously private man. Yet this profile of him in his own words—assembled from interviews with drama critic, Mel Gussow—offers the most complete portrait yet of a man who 'has just about everything—enormous power, great depth, absolute expertise and the ability to illuminate a character by the simplest of means' (Harold Pinter). The book is rounded off by interviews with writers, directors and actors who have worked with him: Dennis Potter, Alan Ayckbourn, Harold Pinter, Simon Russell Beale, Deborah Warner, Peter Hall and Adrian Noble.
