Here at Official London Theatre we’ve interviewed our fair share of legendary actors and directors, but, as the Olivier Awards’ official news channel, being given the exclusive opportunity to interview Kevin Spacey at this year’s Olivier Awards with MasterCard was a particularly exciting highlight.
The acclaimed stage and screen actor, and outgoing Artistic Director of the Old Vic, took to the red carpet to talk to us about receiving his Special Award, how he’s feeling about stepping down from his role at the Waterloo venue and his plans to return to theatre in the future.
Take a look at the video above to discover his proudest moment at the helm of the venue, hear about his final “monster” of a performance on the Old Vic’s stage and be drawn in by his incredibly infectious smile. Believe me, there’s nothing you can do to stop it.
For an even bigger dose of Spacey you can tune into ITV Player, where you’ll not only see him collect his award from the equally legendary Dame Judi Dench but take to the stage of the Royal Opera House to perform a special duet with Beverley Knight.
