  • Published: 09 October 2019
  • 'Modern Love' actor Andrew Scott, who also stars as the Hot Priest in Amazon's 'Fleabag,' believes the works of William Shakespeare can be presented for modern audiences without shortening or dumbing-down the Bard's works. #Colbert #AndrewScott #Fleabag

          He's in Band of Brothers, like a bunch of now-famous actors were. It's hard to hear him deliver a perfect american accent without thinking he will "burn the HEART... out of you".

            I think I need to see a doctor. Every time I see him I automatically growl and um... it’s getting... inconvenient

                  Andrew Scott’s voice needs to be on one of those meditation apps because I could listen to him talk all day long.
                  No doubt about it.

                      This is so weird. I met Andrew recently... on his way to Pret, of all places. Just chatted with him while waiting for the lights to change. XD Now he's on the Late Show.

                      Anyway, as much as I enjoyed his performance in "Fleabag" and "Present Laughter", I have to say that I saw that Hamlet production he is referring to and it was a grave disappointment. He's just not suited for that role (whereas Present Laughter seemed absolutely perfect for him).

                        Honestly this was such a nice video. I felt as though this was truly an actor being themselves. No side jokes or what others want to hear. Just a person talking about things they are passionate about, being a human guy.

                              Letting women be priests just might be another idea, but I doubt those men will consider that any time soon, lol.

                                            If there's ever a live-action remake of The Nightmare Before Christmas, Andrew Scott should play Jack Skellington
