The amazing Vicious, starring two of my favourite actors Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi, is set to soon air in America. Gary Janetti’s show which is about the almost 50-year relationship between two gay men will run for six episodes on PBS from Sunday, July the 6th.
It is the second time the pair have acted together as they were both students at Cambridge University together and were both members of the uni’s Marlowe Society. They performed together in Henry IV. McKellen is reported to have had a crush on Jacobi during this time which he said was “a passion that was undeclared and unrequited.”
We’ve all been there Ian!
In the UK, the show has been commissioned for a second season.
