Derek Jacobi’s life has been devoted to acting, since his stage debut at the age of seven, in a local library production of The Prince and the Swineherd. Cast as the National Youth Theatre’s Hamlet during his final year at school, Derek won a scholarship to Cambridge, where he studied and acted alongside other future acting greats. He has since starred in roles ranging from the lead in I, Claudius to Hitler in Inside the Third Reich.

Professional reviews

"Funny, warm and honest, Jacobi brings us his insider’s view on the world of acting. From a simple childhood in the East End to the height of fame on stage and screen, Derek recalls his journey in full. Star of stage, screen and television, and one of only two people to be awarded two Knighthoods, Sir Derek Jacobi is one of Britain’s most distinguished actors"
