I recently had the privilege of working with an old friend of mine, James (Jimmy) Hayes.
Jimmy has done more shows at the National than any other living actor and has written a fabulous book about his 50 years in the industry, called Shouting In The Evenings.
We were playing Stephano and Trinculo respectively in the RSC’s Tempest.
Jimmy is full of incredible stories and nuggets of wisdom and threw this particular gem out quite casually one night in our dressing room
‘Grace and Pace’. It really caught my ear.
