I know many of you are new fans so this is a flashback to 1989. Ben and new wife Francesca Buller were cast in Dustin Hoffman’s Merchant of Venice on Broadway. Francesca had also been in the London production. She told a wonderful story at one of the Farscape cons about one of the early rehearsals in New York. The cast is all crowded in a room and Dustin Hoffman makes the suggestion on the direction someone comes on stage for swordplay. She panics as she hears a familiar voice saying No no as they have just moved here and need the job! Ben proceeds to demonstrate and Dustin Hoffman see his point . Special thanks to Auntie Nora for helping my memory on this!
