Playing Hamlet in his thirties led to one of the most memorable moments of Ben Kingsley’s career. The day after his performance a young woman approached him and said “I saw Hamlet last night. How did you know about me?” She had strongly identified with the way he
portrayed the character’s torment. “You take that with you for the rest of your career. That story for me is very much why i do what i do.” -from an interview with Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley.
