Far too long has Europe been deprieved of Jack Davenport’s excellent dastardly-then-again-not-really choreographer Derek Wills. There are two really good videos of an interview with Jack Davenport talking about the character and his thoughts on the show. Part I is here (can’t be embedded, sorry), part II here.
“He [Derek Wills] couldn’t care less about what anyone thinks about him. I sadly do care what people think about me, I wish I cared less but I don’t and it’s quite liberating to play someone like that.”
I’m very curious how “Smash” will be received over here. The British press loves to eat their own, but at the end of the day, it’s the fans who make or break a show. Up to you now, guys!
I’m leaving you with a shot of Jack on the red carpet of the Olivier Awards. Unsurprisingly, he won the award for Best Tux of the Evening.
