Cicero cast and crew

7 May 2018

Out this month is the second of our Big Finish Originals, Cicero. Samuel Barnett (Dirk Gently, The History Boys, The Lady in the Van, Torchwood) plays the titular Cicero, and we’ve more details about the production from him and his co-star from behind-the-scenes.

We’ve more from behind-the-scenes with Samuel Barnett and George Naylor in an interview at the recording of Cicero back in September last year.

Samuel Barnett on returning to play Cicero for a full series told Vortex: “What appeals to me about Cicero is that we have so much source material for not only his public and political life, but also the private, personal side of him through his writing. He reveals who he is in all his letters and speeches and it’s fascinating to dramatise that, to bring him to life.

Cicero is so engrained in our lives today in ways that we don’t even realise, and yet he’s probably not among the first people who spring to mind when we think of famous historical figures. His influence reaches across millennia. I’m drawn to what makes a person say and do the extraordinary things he did.”
