Sir Derek Jacobi is one of the world's preeminent classical actors. He was one of the eight founding members of Olivier's National Theatre Company. The classic TV drama serial, 'I, Claudius' (1976) made Jacobi a household name. He has also played such historical figures as Lord Byron, Thomas Becket, Adolf Hitler and the painter Francis Bacon. He was knighted in 1994 for his services to the theatre.
