The Chris Evans Breakfast Show (2011)

Michael Sheen speaks to Chris Evans (the DJ) about rehearsing Hamlet and Shakespeare, and chooses some of the music played.

He also discusses meeting Paul McCartney on a plane, Frost/Nixon – including a glowing review of Michael’s performance by Moira Stuart (who worked with Frost) – Gerry Rafferty, Billy Connolly, an exhibition celebrating a year since The Passion of Port Talbot, Anthony Hopkins and Richard Burton (including a rare impression!), and going to Buckingham Palace to receive his OBE.
