THROWBACK THURSDAY: Getting to know you: Will Self and David Tennant

Image
Today's Throwback Thursday post is an interview with David Tennant and Will Self from the Evening Standard back in 2012.

Quite famous sci-fi slash Shakespearean actor WLTM tall, sardonic writer with a taste for the surreal. GSOH vital. Stephen Armstrong sets up Will Self and David Tennant on a rather successful first date..

Will Self and David Tennant have much in common: a love of sci-fi, an artful embracing of the English language and a dyspeptic dislike of fools. When Sky Arts cast Tennant as the lead in The Minor Character, Self’s screenwriting debut about a riled artist observing the decay of an uncomfortable social circle, it seemed the inevitable result of a long friendship forged in some celebrity lounge somewhere. So we were shocked to hear that the two of them had barely spoken before. We decided to play matchmaker, gathering them in the basement of the Fitzroy Tavern on Charlotte Street. This proved a partial success – see their comments on drinking, overleaf – but as …

David Tennant On 'Delicious' Don Juan & Keeping The Play Topical

Image
David Tennant says that he and playwright Patrick Marber intend to keep their new staging of Don Juan In Soho as topical as possible. David was speaking to press following the official first night performance of the play last night.

Patrick Marber's updating of the original 17th Century play Don Juan by Molière was first performed in 2006 with Rhys Ifans in the lead role, but Marber, who also directs the revival, is constantly tweaking the production to include topical jokes.


"We are sprinkling occasional contemporary references as we go," David explained. "We add them on the day. Prince George is in his third day now. George Osborne lasted for a weekend. Donald Trump is in there. Obviously it has to relate to Don Juan and his world view. He's got this fury about the hypocrisy of the world that he's in."
David added that it hasn't been difficult to find new material. "The world keeps presenting itself with fresh material and we can't really re…
