"Rowan Atkinson would be a definitive Malvolio"
Rowan Atkinson takes on his most serious role yet as the eponymous hero of Simon Gray's play Quartermaine's Terms.
Rowan Atkinson and Theatre Director Richard Eyre talk to Mark Lawson about the challenges of playing such a quiet and sedentary character.
Eyre's hopes it won't be 25 years until Rowan's next theatre performance, "I think Rowan would be a definitive Malvolio".
