1I'd always liked the idea that drama acts at its best as a kind of arena for debate. Not just about the thing itself, but also producing aesthetic, stylistic, political and moral discussions.
2Surely the job of fiction is to actually tell the truth. It's a paradox that's at the heart of any kind of storytelling.
3All the great novels, all the great films, all the great dramas are fictions that actually tell us the truth about us or about human nature or about human situations without being tied into the minutia of documentary events. Otherwise we might as well just make documentaries.


1Majored in English at London University, and trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.
2Has a flat in Marylebone and formerly owned a house three miles from the coast in Norfolk, where he liked to cook fish.
3He has two older brothers, Christopher and Tim, and an older sister, Kate. Through them he has 10 nieces and nephews, plus some great nieces and nephews.
4He was awarded the Laurence Olivier Theatre Award in 1990 (1989 season) for Most Promising Newcomer for his performance in "The Voysey Inheritance".
5While playing the small role of "Osric" and understudying the title role in a 1989 production of "Hamlet", Jeremy replaced star Daniel Day-Lewis when the actor had a total breakdown in mid-performance.
