PANELIST BIO

Over his twenty-seven year long acting career, David Tennant has left a trail of memorable characters over an expansive and diverse array of film, television and on stage credits.

Currently, David can be seen on stage as the title character in Shakespeare's Richard II as a part of the Brooklyn Academy of Music's King & Country: Shakespeare's Great Cycle Of Kings series. The series marks the celebration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death and will run at the BAM Harvey Theater through April 29th.

This past November, Tennant starred as the villainous "Dr. Zebediah Kilgrave" otherwise known as "The Purple Man" opposite Krystin Ritter in the Netflix Marvel series Jessica Jones. The streaming service aired the 13-episode in its entirety on November 20th, 2015.

Tennant will next star as the world-renowned Scottish psychiatrist RD Laing in Robert Mullan's Mad to be Normal alongside Elizabeth Moss. The story follows Dr. Laing and his unique community at Kingsley Hall, East London during the 1960's. The film completed production the past Fall of 2015 and is set to release in 2016.

Tennant is most recently known for his role as detective "Alec Hardy" on the critically acclaimed BBC crime series Broadchurch. Tennant's character was brought to the small town of Broadchurch to investigate the murder of an 11-year-old local boy. In its second season, Broadchurch was nominated and won several awards, including the 2014 BAFTA TV Award for "Best Drama Series" Season 3 of the series will begin filming this summer.

Tennant starred alongside Rosamund Pike in the British comedy What We Did on Our Holiday as the dad of a family who struggles keeping any secret quiet on their family trip. Lionsgate released the film in the US and on VOD on July 10th, 2015.

Tennant is most recognizable for his portrayal as the 10th Doctor on the widely beloved series Doctor Who. The BBC science fiction series itself has become a pop culture fixture and a fifty-year cult favorite. It depicts the adventures of the time traveling humanoid alien Doctor as he defends himself against foes and protects whole civilizations and people in need. In November 2013, and 2015 as part of Doctor Who‍‍ '‍s 50th Anniversary celebrations, Tennant's Doctor was voted "The UK's Favourite Doctor" in a survey held by the Radio Times magazine. Tennant has appeared in many spin-offs of the series. These include: his directorial debut on the 2007 "Doctor Who Confidential" episode; a small role in the show's webcast "Scream of the Shalka"; an appearance as the Doctor in an animated version of the show for CBBC's Totally Doctor Who, The Infinite Quest; and a starring role as the Doctor in another animated six-part Doctor Who series entitled Dreamland. An enthusiast and loyal supporter of the series, Tennant announced that he would be stepping down from the role in 2008 after his participation in the 50th anniversary special, "The Day of the Doctor". For his part in the show, Tennant won three TV Quick Awards, three SFX Awards, four National Television Awards, and two BAFTA awards, among numerous other nominations over the course of his four-year Doctor tenure.

Since then, Tennant has gone on to star in a series of prodigious film roles. In April 2012, he played the lead in a one-off drama entitled The Minor Character for Sky Arts. Between April and June of the same year, he played the lead role of "Jean-François Mercier" in the BBC Four mini-series Spies of Warsaw.  In 2010, he starred as a widowed father in the British drama Single Father, which followed his character "Dave" as he struggled to raise five children after the death of his partner. For this role, he was nominated as "Best Actor" at the Royal Television Society Programme Awards. Among his other accolades was a 2009 Critics Choice Award for "Best Shakespearean Performance" for his titular role in the Royal Shakespeare Company production of Hamlet

In November 2008, Tennant starred in the BBC and HBO biopic Einstein and Eddington. The TV movie featured him in the role of "Sir Arthur Eddington" who was the first physicist to lend a helping hand to Albert Einstein as he sought to prove his experimental and controversial theories.

In February of 2007, Tennant starred in Recovery, a 90-minute BBC One drama written by Tony Marchant. He played "Alan", an ambitious site-manager attempting to rebuild his life after a tragic brain injury. Later that same year, Tennant starred in the BBC comedy drama Learners. The film, written by and starring Jessica Hynes, featured Tennant as Christian driving instructor "Chris", who finds himself the unsolicited object of a student's affection.

In 2005, the National Video Archive of Performance recorded Tennant as "Jimmy Porter" in the Theatre Royal play Look Back in Anger for the Victoria and Albert Museum Theatre Collection. Further solidifying his place as one of the UK's elite, Tennant made an appearance in the popular J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series as "Barty Crouch Jr." in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in the same year. Also in 2005, Tennant portrayed the younger "Casanova" in the British television comedy drama serial Casanova.

As well as being a seasoned professional actor, he is an award winning voice-over actor. He has lent his voice to a wide range of characters, including "Huyand" in animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars; "Spitelout" in How to Train Your Dragon; and "Twigs" in Tree Fu Tom, among others.

In 1996, at 25 years old, Tennant joined the RSC as Touchstone in As You Like It and went on to play Jack Lane in The Herbal Bed, the leading role in Romeo and Juliet, and Antipholus of Syracuse in The Comedy of Errors (for which he received a nomination in the 2000 Ian Charleson awards for Best Classical Actor under 30).

He returned to the RSC to play Berowne in Love's Labour's Lost and a much acclaimed Hamlet in 2008 which the BBC made into a TV film version starring Tennant in 2009. It was also the subject of a recent documentary as part of the BBC's Shakespeare Unlocked series in 2012.

From his first projects with the Royal Shakespeare Company, to his first role in the 1996 Touchstone production of As You Like It, to his present day resume of timeless characters in all areas of performance, Tennant continues to amass an ever-growing fanbase worldwide.

Hamlet - Reviews mentioning DT


BBC arts editor Will Gompertz described it as "not bad", adding:

They say that a good actor playing Hamlet goes to the audience … a great actor brings the audience to the character. Certainly David Tennant did that ... and there were times when Benedict Cumberbatch did that too. But there were other times, particularly, I thought, with the soliloquies, where he was delivering a speech as opposed to showing a man thinking out loud, which happened to be overheard by a thousand people.

Dominic Cavendish, the Telegraph

 

Dear (possibly exhausted) reader I will toy with you no further. Cumberbatch admirers can take heart, his female devotees are entitled to swoon: in this trial of his acting strength, he emerges, unquestionably, victorious. He may lack the moodiness of Daniel Day-Lewis, the quirkiness of David Tennant or the raw edge of Jude Law, but in his own way he stands equal to the best modern Hamlets, makes the part his – and yes, justifies the hysteria.

David Ellis, Evening Standard

Simon Russell Beale - National Theatre, 2000

Beale had waited 20 years before he was finally had his chance – and he made the most of it. In John Caird's production, Russell Beale went right for the depths of Hamlet's warring mind: he did not treat him as a glamorous figure, preferring to present a simple, stirring study of tragic grief.

"A sensitive and deeply human Hamlet - lonely, vulnerable, soulful," summarised Evening Standard theatre critic Henry Hitchings. In an interview with the Telegraph, Russell Beale described the role as "...very hospitable. It will take anything you throw at it. You get bitter Hamlets, you get revengeful Hamlets, arrogant Hamlets, witty Hamlets." He said his Hamlet "was just so devastated by the unexpectedness of grief. He didn't know what to do with himself."

Ben Whishaw - Old Vic, 2004

"There's an electrifying rawness and fragility in this 23-year-old's intense, mournful performance" said Henry Hitchings. Though Cumberbatch will be 39 when he takes to the stage, Whishaw was just 23.  Ahead of his performance, he told the Standard: "I'm not anybody. I'm not a name. No one's coming to see Ben Whishaw 'do' Hamlet." But once the reviews splashed across the front pages, he became both a name and a draw.

The Evening Standard's then-critic, Nicholas de Jongh, wrote of Whishaw's "magical impact" and "raw passion". This was high praise indeed from de Jongh, a man whose typical one-liners usually went more along the brutal lines of "She had a shot at the part and killed it stone dead". The Telegraph's Charles Spencer went even further, gushing that the opening night was the "kind of evening of which legends are made, on of those rare first nights that those who were present are never likely to forget." Cumberbatch has his work cut for him.

David Tennant - Novello Theatre, RSC, 2008

While critics were somewhat split over how effective the RSC's production was itself, and cynics sniped that theatre bosses were doing little more than cashing in on Doctor Who's popularity, Tennant came out of proceedings with his back well slapped for his sardonic, energetic take on things. Henry Hitchings said Tennant "excitingly conveyed both slippery intelligence and a wild physicality", while the Guardian's Michael Billington wrote: "This is a Hamlet of quicksilver intelligence, mimetic vigour and wild humour: one of the funniest I've ever seen".

Rory Kinnear - National Theatre, 2010

Henry Hitchings says that of all the Hamlets he's seen since he began working for the Standard, Kinnear was "hands down the best", and at the time wrote he was "a captivating presence" and declared: "In Rory Kinnear the National Theatre has a stunning new Hamlet".

Kinnear, unlike Tennant, brought out the pensive, philosophical side of Hamlet, and was praised for his portrayal of the Prince's intellectual struggles – and for playing him very much as an adult wrestling with his feelings, and not a naïve young man who isn't in control of them.

Michael Sheen - Young Vic, 2011

Though starring in what Hitchings calls a "rather peculiar production", which set the play in a mental institution and sharply divided critics in the process, the Welsh actor, then 42, received a standing ovation on opening night for his turn as a prickly Prince, who Hitchings said "magnetises attention", noting "his way with the text is lucid, intelligent and often ecstatically original".

Russell Jackson, the Conversation

The clue to the play's perennial attraction for actors and audiences lies in these puzzles and opportunities for the title character, who can also be trenchant, witty and aggressive as well as "sweet". In my own experience David Warner excelled at this on stage, and on film Richard Burton in the 1960s, Michael Pennington in the early 1980s and David Tennant in the present decade have achieved the same. 

Michael Billington, the Guardian

 

Oscar Wilde once wrote: "In point of fact there is no such thing as Shakespeare's Hamlet. If Hamlet has something of the definiteness of a work of art, he also has all the obscurity that belongs to life. There are as many Hamlets as there are melancholies."

Wilde's point was that the actor's individuality is a vital part of the interpretation. That is true of all Shakespeare. But the actor who plays Lear, Falstaff or Cleopatra is necessarily involved, to some extent, in a feat of impersonation. What makes Hamlet, as a role, unique is its capacity to accommodate an actor's particular strengths. John Gielgud highlighted Hamlet's lyrical introspection, Laurence Olivier his athletic virility, Nicol Williamson his rancorous disgust, Mark Rylance his tormented isolation, David Tennant his mercurial humour.

It's a role that defies age: I saw David Warner play it when he was 24, Michael Redgrave when he was 50 (Cumberbatch at 39 more or less splits the difference). It's also a part that famously transcends gender. Of the three female Hamlets I've seen, Frances de la Tour's was marked by a swashbuckling vigour, the German Angela Winkler's by a delicate tenderness and Maxine Peake's by a built-in bullshit detector.

To put it in a nutshell, no actor can ever quite fail as Hamlet. I wouldn't deny the role tests the actor's vocal technique and physical stamina to the utmost. But the character – compounded of piercing sanity and existential despair, infinite hesitation and impulsive action, self-laceration and observant irony – is so multi-faceted, it is bound to coincide at some point with an actor's particular gifts. The real test is not whether an actor can play Hamlet: it is how much of the character's multi-dimensionality he can encompass.
