Charles Edwards made his Globe debut as Benedick in the 2011 season's Much Ado About Nothing.
In this interview, Charles gives Benedick's and Beatrice's relationship a modern perspective. He also talks about how quickly the reheasal weeks are passing, admiting that he's happy to be working on Saturdays for the extra time.
In this first interview, Charles Edwards talks about his familiarity with Much Ado About Nothing, having played Don Pedro in the Peter Hall production at Bath festival. Now Charles plays the role of Benedick and so he explains his need to look at the play from a very different angle.
