Kenneth Branagh has been nominated for an Academy Award in 5 different categories, acted and directed in critical favorites and blockbusters alike, gotten his hands and feet enshrined just this month in Hollywood, and is generally considered THE foremost interpreter of Shakespeare's work on the stage and screen today. He also somehow remains humble and grounded and hungry for new challenges, all of which comes up this episode of "Happy Sad Confused".
Branagh makes a return visit to the podcast to discuss his 70mm production of the Agatha Christie classic "Murder on the Orient Express". The actor/director also discusses what it was like to achieve fame and acclaim in his 20s, how his upbringing kept him humble, his thoughts on "Thor: Ragnarok", and why he'll always return to "Hamlet" throughout his career.
