Shows That Shaped Me is a new theatre podcast from WhatsOnStage in which we ask leading theatre actors and makers about their most memorable productions, the production they wished they'd seen and the person, dead or alive, that they'd most like to work with.

This week's guest is stage and screen actor Alfred Molina.

On screen, his credits include Raiders of the Lost Ark, Boogie Nights, Frida and Spider-Man 2.

In 1980, he earned an Olivier Award nomination for Best Newcomer in Oklahoma! at the Palace Theatre, and his stage roles since then include Speed the Plow at the National in 1989, Yasmina Reza's Art on Broadway in 1998 and Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof in 2004 for which he received a Tony Award nomination.

In 2009 he played Mark Rothko in John Logan's Red at the Donmar Warehouse and won a Drama League Award for the production's Broadway transfer. He now returns to the role in the show's West End premiere, which runs at Wyndham's Theatre until 28 July.
