On-screen character Ian McShane says his greatest lament in life is not featuring in a film nearby his dear companion John Hurt who kicked the bucket in January at 77 years old. McShane and Hurt were companions as far back as they learned at RADA (The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art) in London together.
"Johnny Hurt kicked the bucket before we got the opportunity to make another film together. Johnny was two terms in front of me (at RADA) and afterward he cleared out and I got the lead in a motion picture he was at that point in. He proposed it for me. At that point we did our first play together and we shared a level. It's entertaining considering him gone. We're the remainder of the breed, us part."
"You know you move from TV, you go to theater, you do film - that is the thing that you were raised to do. Appropriate acting. That is the thing that you appreciate doing. That is the thing that he did," McShane says. McShane likewise has a desire to work with acclaimed English chief Ken Loach, whose last motion picture 'I, Daniel Blake' was granted the Palme d'Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival
