Rafe Spall can currently be seen in the latest blockbuster from the Jurassic stable playing Eli MIlls, a scheming businessman trying to bend his immediate world to his doing. And the same can be said about his role in Hedda Gabler, playing the unnerving puppet master Judge Brack, orchestrating the downfall of pretty much everyone else in the Ibsen’s classic, and with Ivo van Hove pulling out every bit of charismatic suave machismo from Spall.

We sat down with Rafe and talked about Ivo van Hove’s rehearsal process, the intricacies of trying to look cool at all times on stage, avoiding slip ups on rose petals (you’ll have to listen to see what I mean) and just what it takes to come back to the stage as not only a theatre professional, but a theatre professional with a young family.
