Gormenghast press

Interview with Jonathan Rhys Meyers From The Disappearance of Finbar DVD One morning I got a phone call from Patsy Pollock who’s a very, very close friend — a very, very beautiful woman, and she said, “I’ve got this script and I think you’re really good for it,” and so she sent it to me — it was The Disappearance of Finbar — and I read it straight away that morning, about 9 o’clock. I was undecided between the two characters because Danny gets more airtime within it, but...
