The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

I loved him in "Searching For Bobby Fischer." (He played Pandolfini)

I saw Kingsley do this play about Kean in New York, onstage, and he was stunning. There's a famous Coleridge quote about Kean that "seeing him act was like reading Shakespeare by lightning." That was exactly what Kingsley made me feel when I saw him; the nice thing about this video is that some of that comes through even in that medium.
