John Le Carre and his books have been in my family for years. I never read him but my father and brother did. It has taken me a while to come around to reading them but I have that extra bit of motivation now I know you’re a huge part of the film playing Taylor( Bill Haydon). I’ve booked my out of stock copy of the book already. What a fantastic role for Gary Oldman, I think it is brilliant the mantle of George Smiley is being handed over after Sir Alec Guinness played him. I love him as an actor, think he’s quite brilliant really. What a cast you have, I bet you feel honored. Oh and I wouldn’t worry about getting a few wrinkles, they suit you. As much as we loved Darcy, you belong in this era, taking on these plum, meaty roles. Er, your older self that is.
