Kenneth Branaghwas on the Leonard Lopate Show recently to discuss his career as an actor and director -- and to discuss his role as Sir Laurence Olivier in the film, "My Week with Marilyn." He also revealed that his favorite comfort food is fish and chips. (It must be an English thing.)
Fifty five years ago, the great Shakespearean actor Sir Laurence Olivier teamed up with the biggest movie star in the world, Marilyn Monroe for a little comedic film called "The Prince and the Showgirl." Olivier ,at nearly 50-years-old, directed the film and played the prince. Monroe, at 30, played the showgirl.
