We’ve already heard from Director Ritesh Batra and Billy Howle who plays the young Jim Broadbent character (Tony Webster) in The Sense of an Ending but now it’s the turn of Broadbent and co-star Harriet Walter who talk about tackling the project.
The Sense of an Ending tells the story of a man becomes haunted by his past and is presented with a mysterious legacy that causes him to re-think his current situation in life.
In the interview conducted by Phoebe Winter, Broadbent talks about how much he ‘loved the character’ and how he would adore to play Tony. Harriet talks about how this role was quite different to other roles that she’s taken on and how this appealed to try something a little different.
They talk about working together previously and how working on this new project put them at ease. They also speak about what it was about their characters that they liked so much and why it was a pleasure to play them.
The Sense of an Ending is based on the book by Julian Barnes, also stars Charlotte Rampling, Emily Mortimer, Matthew Goode and Michelle Dockery, is directed by Ritesh Batra and is released today 14th April. You can see our review of the movie here.
