USA: Mad To Be Normal Released On DVD Today

Image
Mad To Be Normal starring David Tennant is released on Region 1 DVD in the USA today. David gives an award-winning performance as the controversial Scottish psychiatrist RD Laing in the film which premiered at the Glasgow Film Festival last year.

The movie is based upon Laing's revolutionary work during the 1960s when he set up a medication-free treatment facility in London for people experiencing mental illness. The Kingsley Hall project allowed patients and medical staff to live alongside each other as equals and promoted talking therapies that encouraged patients to work through their psychosis. Although dismissed as dangerous by his peers at the time, Laing's methods went on to shape how mental health interventions are managed today. Elisabeth Moss, Gabriel Byrne and Michael Gambon also star. Mad To Be Normal was written and directed by Robert Mullan and produced by Gizmo Films with Bad Penny Productions, GSP Studios and LipSync.

Last night Neil also tweeted about one of David's final scenes:

OUT TODAY - David Tennant Talks To His Younger Self For The Big Issue: "Acting...You're Still Getting Away With It"

Image
The new edition of The Big Issue magazine is out today nationally in the UK, and includes a new interview with David Tennant. David spoke to writer Jane Graham exclusively for the regular feature 'Letter To My Younger Self'.

A few extracts have already appeared online. David discusses how he would talk to his 16-year old self about his early plans to be an actor, saying: 
"I didn’t know any actors. And people all around me were going, quite rightly, this is a daft idea. You won’t make a living. It was sound and proper advice. But a little part of the teenage me thought they might be wrong. It would be nice to go back to him now and tell him, you’re in your mid-40s now, and you’re still getting away with it. Though I still don’t know how much longer that’ll last."

He adds, "I knew I definitely wanted to go to drama school. I think I got my first acting job at 16. Or even 15, an anti-smoking ad. Then I did an episode of Dramarama. We went to the Isle of Skye for four…

You, Me And HimOn his character's hipster beard:
"It was nearly all my beard. It was 90 per cent my beard, with a sort of promontory at the front which was added, little tufts of yak hair just to give it that little bit extra. I had it long enough to get quite a full carpet round my chin, but not quite long enough to have the little sculpted extra that gave it the full hipster."
On aging hipster alpha male John: "...He's a little bit too old for it. And that's very much the point really. He's a man living a youth that he somehow felt he missed out on – unhappil…
