David Shares Critics' Circle Award With Sir Derek Jacobi

David has been presented with the Critics' Circle Award for Best Shakespearean Performance for his role as Hamlet.
He will share the award with Sir Derek Jacobi for his performance as Malvolio in The Twelth Night.
On accepting his award David said: "When I was at drama school, I waited at the stage door of Glasgow Theatre Royal to get Derek Jacobi's autograph, after his breathtaking Richard II. I was utterly inspired by that night, so to be sharing a prize for Shakespeare with such an amazing actor means more than I can say."
He also described the experience of playing Hamlet for the Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford-upon-Avon as "a dream I never imagined I would get to fulfil".
