John Le Carre Talks About The Gender Swap In The Night Manager

In the latest set of Author Notes for AMC's The Night Manager, author John Le Carre talks about the changes that were made to his investigator Burr. Originally a male character in the novel, the producer changed it to Angela Burr and cast Olivia Coleman (Broadchurch) in the role. Le Carre says he finds the change quite fitting and things that the actress brings something very unique and needed to the story.
