"Great things have always been expected of Toby Stephens. He is the son of two great actors: Maggie Smith and Robert Stephens. He has already notched up a mesmerising Coriolanus and a formidable Hamlet, not to mention a brooding Rochester in the BBC’s Jane Eyre. So which great cultural figure is he playing next? “I suppose I’m Sid James,” he laughs."
That is the first paragraph of an interview with Toby, which was in The Times recently, along with a rather nicer picture than last time!
According to the interviewer, Toby is "annoyingly handsome"! Not a sentiment I would disagree with!
