Derek Jacobi, who insists he still feels like a teenager, will join his fellow Cinderella film stars Lily James and Richard Madden on stage in Romeo And Juliet. The 76-year-old theatrical knight has been persuaded by Kenneth Branagh to play Romeo's swashbuckling pal Mercutio — a part usually taken by actors half his age. Jacobi, who has had a long acting association with Branagh, told me he didn't expect to be playing Mercutio 'at my age', though he — and Branagh — pointed out that Mercutio's age is never mentioned. In any event, he's not at all fazed by the age difference between him and fellow thespians Lily James and Richard Madden.

He said there's a hint in the text of Mercutio being something of a father figure to Romeo and his friends, and there's justification in the play 'of their acceptance of his company, and his delight in being in the company of those relative kids'. Branagh directed his first Romeo And Juliet 30 years ago and has always wanted to revisit it with a more mature Mercutio. 'As part mentor, part father figure to Romeo, there is a fascinating chance to chart a different experience of.
