Character & Cast
Mr Merdle is the Man of the Age, the richest man in London. However, far from enjoying his hard-earned status, he seems to find it a terrible burden. He shuffles around with his head held low, preoccupied with work-related worries and intimidated by all the pomp and splendour that surrounds him. He also complains of feeling unwell, but his doctor is unable to put his finger on what is wrong with him.
Having graduated from RADA, Anton Lesser has played many of the principal Shakespearian roles for the Royal Shakespeare Company. His TV credits include A Touch of Frost, Dalziel and Pascoe and Spooks. He also starred in the feature film Miss Potter.
