The Sonic Society

Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

Hurt’s So Good!

johnhurtSo many great stars old and new keep coming back to Audio Drama. Now it’s the War Doctor himself, John Hurt, has a plea for many people out there. About radio drama, Mr. Hurt says:

 “I consider it a very important part of my life. I think one of the major weapons of an actor is the voice. And I think [radio] is a forgotten art. And it’s just wonderful to be someone who is celebrating that particular art.”

Mr. Hurt was honoured in the BBC Awards for his outstanding contribution to radio. Catch the rest of his thoughts on our “forgotten art” in The Stage.

Editor’s Note: Anyone out there who knows Mr. Hurt, I’d be happy to interview him for Sonic Speaks!- Jack
