Santino Fontana in Hamlet (2006)
The role has a lot of baggage, but I just started with the fact that his dad has passed away, his mom married his uncle and he has to stay home longer than he wants to. Everything after that is Hamlet trying to figure out how to get things back to the way they were.
People say he’s not active, but he’s incredibly active—he keeps changing his mind because he knows he’s only got one shot, and he’s trying to figure out who he can trust. It’s one of those plays that never really leaves you. I wish I could do it again.” (x)
First time I had seen Hamlet was this production (also my first time at the Guthrie).
This was my first time seeing Hamlet, too. :)
