The Camberwell Character Actor

Funny quote from the TCM Movie Channel:

"But by the time I first met him in the 1920s he was already much in demand in London as a character actor . . . I found him enormously helpful and encouraging to work with. I was always trying to copy him in my first years as an actor. Until I decided to imitate Noel Coward instead." [The late John Gielgud pays homage to the late Claude Rains.]
