Ralph Fiennes Shakespeare Photos


Today is Ralph Fiennes' birthday.

So, I thought I would find some photos of his Shakespeare performances over the years.

Most recently he was in the fantastic film adaptation of Coriolanus, and he was on stage as Prospero in The Tempest in 2011.

I do hope that he doesn't wait too long to return to Shakespeare.

If I am not mistaken, this is a picture of him as Romeo, in 1986:





From Much Ado About Nothing, 1988:







As Troilus, directed by Sam Mendes, 1990:

This set of photos is from Hamlet, in 1995.

This set is from Richard II, in 2000:
