Brian Cox giving a Shakespearean masterclass to a 30-month-old will make your day
Scottish actor, Brian Cox has racked up a long and distinguished career on the stage and screens of varying sizes, so he knows his way around a soliloquy, which is why he’d be the ideal person to pass on that knowledge. A video from 2009 has cropped up again, in which he coaches Theo, the 30-month-old son of some friends, in one of the greatest soliloquies of all – Hamlet’s “To be or not to be” speech.

Well this is utterly beautiful. Do yourself a favour and take two minutes to watch this joy. ♥️ https://t.co/8vLaPnFPhz
