Photos of Ralph Fiennes Masterclass


Towards the end of last year Ralph Fiennes gave an actors masterclass at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in London. He was interviewed by Geoffrey Coleman, head of acting at Central School of Speech and Drama in London. Geoffrey asked Ralph about his directorial debut of a feature film, Coriolanus. Ralph said it was a mad and ambitious risk. 'I went into it knowing it could go very wrong as he is one of the lesser known Shakespeare characters but it spoke to me.' 'I now know how much of the performance is made in the editing room.'
