This week marks the end of a 12 year hiatus from the theatre for actor Mark Strong, as he takes to the Young Vic stage in A View From the Bridge.

Since he last tread the boards in 2002, as Orsino in Twelfth Night at the Donmar Warehouse, Strong has been a regular on our screens, starring in films including Robin Hood, Sherlock Holmes and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.

We met with Mark to discuss why he has decided to return to the stage now, and why with this play. For the full interview, click the video below.
