Despite his demise in 1982 André Tchaíkowsky has recently starred in a Royal Shakespeare Company production of Hamlet in the role of Yorick alongside David Tennant, one of the most famous actors in Britain. Those of you who know a bit about Shakespeare have figured it out by now; for the rest of you: Yorick is not a speaking role, he is a skull. Mr. Tchaikowsky had to die to play the role, which is some serious method acting (top that Sean Penn). In his will Tchaikowsky left his skull to the RSC for use in plays. While many actors playing Hamlet have rehearsed with his skull before, Tennant was the first to actually use it during live performances. Creepy.
