During the hottest stretch of hot summer weather we can remember in years here in the UK, we are bringing you some of our favourite chats from that last few years of the coolest Americans that have come over to play on the London stage - with each of the following three making their London theatrical debuts, and all of them known for their star turns on screen. Listen to John Goodman, Uzo Aduba and Michael C Hall share their experiences from the London stage.

Rafe Spall can currently be seen in the latest blockbuster from the Jurassic stable playing Eli MIlls, a scheming businessman trying to bend his immediate world to his doing. And the same can be said about his role in Hedda Gabler, playing the unnerving puppet master Judge Brack, orchestrating the downfall of pretty much everyone else in the Ibsen’s classic, and with Ivo van Hove pulling out every bit of charismatic suave machismo from Spall.
We sat down with Rafe and talked about Ivo van Hove’s rehearsal process, the intricacies of trying to look cool at all times on stage, avoiding slip ups on rose petals (you’ll have to listen to see what I mean) and just what it takes to come back to the stage as not only a theatre professional, but a theatre professional with a young family.
