in consequence of the missive, GR: Oh, now..., penned by Cheryl
Well, I suppose we shall have to agree to disagree. I just don't believe Shakespeare would toss a character into any of his plays without having some sort of personality. It may not be a strong and dynamic one, like Hamlet, but I believe it is there and well defined.
However, I do agree with you, Cheryl: Nicholas Ferrell is the best Horatio I have ever seen. I think the direction given to him by KB gave his Horatio more individual depth and character than what usually happens. Certainly, Horatio is primarily a plot catalyst and observer, but the Branaugh version (and NF) gives him something more, IMO: a life.
