“I’ve never played Ophelia,” she told Yahoo Movies. “I always thought I’d play Ophelia. And it’s probably not now in my future…it’s a strange thing for theater with actresses, because you kind of grow away from a role.”
His reaction was the best one possible!
“She’s terrific! She can come and join our party if she wants. She hasn’t aged out of our production. I’m an older Hamlet, and we can all be contemporaries in the young world of that play. You give her a call. Call her up and see if she’s that interested in playing Ophelia now. I don’t think it’s an age thing, Jess. It would be lovely for us!”
So, it’s never late! What do you think?
