And this is how you do Shakespeare


To mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, we asked leading actors to perform key speeches from his plays. Here, Damian Lewis performs Antony’s lines from act III, scene 2 of Julius Caesar. Antony has been granted permission to speak at Caesar’s funeral so long as he does not implicate the conspirators in his death, but he skilfully turns the crowd against them.

This goes with the St. Crispin’s day speech of Kenneth Branagh.

  1. Damian Lewis might be the Anthony Hopkins of his generation. Watching spurred me to see more of this series on YouTube and Lo, and behold what do I find but the greatest actor of any generation. Charleton Heston as Marc Antony delivering this same speech. Well worth your time and edification.
