William Nicholson: In Person
A former documentarian for the BBC, British-born William Nicholson has written extensively for stage and cinema. His celebrated attention to emotional detail - apparent in Shadowlands and Nell - does not preclude a flair for the spectacular. He is a noted author of fantasy fiction, and his highest-profile screen credit (and second Oscar® nomination) was for Ridley Scott's epic Gladiator. His next film, The Golden Age, is a sequel to Elizabeth, directed by Shekhur Khan and starring Cate Blanchett, Samantha Morton, Clive Owen and Geoffrey Rush. Just ahead of an imminent stage revival of Shadowlands and the release of The Golden Age, he joins us to discuss his life in writing and especially his work for the screen. HM
