Charisma is a crucial component of a politician's appeal to voters. But there's more than one way to inspire confidence.
British actor Mark Rylance doesn’t confine himself to films, the stage or television, he does them all.
Rylance just got an Oscar nomination for his role as Soviet spy Rudolf Abel in the film “Bridge of Spies.” He’s long been a favorite of New York theater-goers for his Tony Award-winning work in “Boeing, Boeing,” “Jerusalem” and “Twelfth Night.” Fans of the PBS “Masterpiece” series will recognize Mark Rylance for his performance as Thomas Cromwell in “Wolf Hall.”
Mark Rylance is also a playwright. He’s currently appearing at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in “Nice Fish” which he adapted from the prose poetry of his co-author (and co-star), Louis Jenkins.
Rylance came into the WBUR studios to talk with Here & Now’s Meghna Chakrabarti, along with “Nice Fish” director Claire van Kampen, who’s also his wife.
