BBC reporter and Anglophenia guest blogger Tom Brook recently sat down with young British star Ben Whishaw, who plays the poet Keats in the new Romantic drama, Bright Star, directed by Jane Campion.
Whishaw is probably best-known for his role in the BAFTA-winning British miniseries Criminal Justice, but he also appeared in the recent Brideshead Revisited remake with Matthew Goode and Hayley Atwell and in Todd Haynes‘ I’m Not There as one of six Bob Dylans.
Before I hand things over to Tom, let me just say that Mr. Whishaw is looking fantastic with his full goatee.
Again, Robert Pattinson? Robert who?
Take it away, Tom…
