John Le Carre Talks About The Villain Of The Night Manager

John Le Carre, one of the best spy novelist in the world, spends some more time talking about the new AMC series The Night Manager based on his novel. This time the focus turns to his villain, Richard Roper played by the amazingly talent Hugh Laurie. The author explains that Roper puts up a facade of happiness and control but there is a deep sadness underneath. He also talks about how he personally followed the life he was building up for the character in his own travels.

I always like these behind the scenes video, but this one is extra special as we are getting to see the working of a master at his craft.
