“He’s utterly delightful and I will watch his career fantastically closely,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling WENN.

“He’s probably got more energy than any actor I’ve met in 56 years of being in the theatre. He is a powerhouse, like a very strong battery and he always wants to try new things; each take is never quite the same so it’s very, very exciting,” she added.
