Daniel Craig on Pinter's pauses: 'If it doesn't feel right, don't do it'
The Broadway production of Betrayal starring real-life couple Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz and Rafe Spall finally opens on Tuesday night.
The play, about an affair which runs in reverse from break-up to first kiss, is one of Harold Pinter’s finest.
But Craig isn’t overly reverent towards the late playwright’s script. “I think if the pause doesn’t feel right, don’t do it,” he told New York Magazine. “He’s not around anymore, so it’s tough s**t.”
