Anthony Hopkins and Ian McKellen, Jafar Panahi's Taxi, Guy Garvey

Anthony Hopkins and Ian McKellen discuss playing Sir and Norman in The Dresser, Richard Eyre's television adaptation of Ronald Harwood's 1980 play, which tells the story of the relationship between a stage actor and his devoted backstage dresser, and their struggles to get ready for Sir's next performance.
