Paul Mescal

In an interview with Vogue U.K., Academy award nominee Paul Mescal says he is set to play William Shakespeare in the upcoming film adaptation of Lolita Chakrabarti’s newest work, HAMNET. The work, described as “a love letter to passion, birth, grief, and the magic of nature,” is based on Maggie O’Farrell’s best-selling novel of the same name, which explores the personal life of Shakespeare and his wife after they suffer the loss of their 11-year-old son to the plague. Directed by Academy Award winner Chloé Zhao, Mescal also states that the film adaptation will co-star Jessie Buckley, recently seen in the West End as Sally Bowles in CABARET, for which she received an Olivier.
