BAFTA Interview: Bob Hoskins

  • 90 mins


A much-loved British star, in person.


 It is with deepest regret that we have to inform you that Bob Hoskins will not be able to attend the BAFTA interview and the GALA screening of SPARKLE at this years Edinburgh Film Festival. Mr Hoskins has recently undergone surgery to his shoulder and in recuperation , and much as he is disappointed not to be able to come, he is still in pain, and it would risk further exacerbating his shoulder.

If you have bought tickets for this event, the box office team will be in contact with you to arrange a refund.

In celebration of the release of his delightful new film Sparkle - previewed at EIFF - Bob Hoskins discusses a career that has seen him play J Edgar Hoover, Nikita Kruschev, Benito Mussolini and Manuel Noriega; work with Terry Gilliam, Francis Ford Coppola, Steven Spielberg and Atom Egoyan; and co-star with Helen Mirren, Robert De Niro, Roger Rabbit and J-Lo. He remains beloved the world over for a cuddly demeanour that can mask both vulnerability (as in Sparkle) and menace (as in his big-screen breakthrough, The Long Good Friday). In association with BAFTA Scotland, we are proud to present one of Britain's most dynamic and distinctive performers in conversation.
