I'd rather sit behind him and be able to study that adorable little nape curl for eternity than sit in front of him and have to squelch the overriding desire to turn around every five seconds. 😜 That would be torture!
A friend of mine was just telling me she saw it as a NTL production at the cinema a few weeks ago, and she raved about it. They showed it over two nights, a week apart, so the audience only had to be there for about 4 hours each time.
It seems he is having some free time or they are shooting Patrick Melrose again in the U.K. I haven't seen anything new in the last few days which made me wonder if they had a break. Of course it's possible they are working in it without any info leak!
