The Doctor Who star and classical actor reveals how he copes with ‘the horror of the terror’ of theatrical anxiety

The actor allowed himself exactly three squares of chocolate in every interval of one of his shows, finding “comfort in the routine”. “Being on stage is a bit like jumping out of a plane. I try and nail down the things I can control,” he said.
