“I did ten minutes of the entire film on one day, which was three of what I call the arias…Because Shakespeare’s poetry is like music, and there are some bravura pieces, which are like operatic arias. When Henry speaks, it is some of the most heartbreaking warrior poetry that has ever been written in the English language. I have never shot so much of what the crew are calling ‘dialogue’ on one day. It’s not strictly dialogue, though, is it? It is monologues of breathtaking poetry. The poetry of war. The human race evolves, we invent aeroplanes, motorcars, iPads and yet these words are still so potent. Human nature hasn’t changed. And on film, there are moments you can be so quiet and simple with it.”

Tom Hiddleston
