“Romeo and Juliet,” that was a big marker for me and seeing DiCaprio do that was fantastic.  There is a brilliant movie called “25th Hour.”  It was written by David Benioff who wrote “Thrones.”  When I get drunk I always start quoting that speech.  It was plays more than anything really and I saw two plays that were big markers in my career.  When I was about 14 I saw “Waiting for Godot” and I absolutely adored it. I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread and it made me pick up drama.  The other one was “Hamlet” that I saw when I was 17 which made me want to go to drama school and that was Ben Wishaw playing Hamlet and he was just mesmerizing.  He is the only person that has ever made me tongue-tied when I met him.  I didn’t know what to say and went very red around the face and sort of had to walk off. He is a hero of mine. - Kit Interview by Nell Minow
