Will Ferrell discussed his work with Francine Stock in this BAFTA: A Life In Pictures interview video.
The American comedian has delighted with everything from impressions on Saturday Night Live to more dramatic roles in Melinda & Melinda and Everything Must Go. He started his career like many great comedians before him, on US TV show Saturday Night Live, Will Ferrell has over the last decade cemented his status as one of America’s funniest men.
After a succession of smaller parts in films, he starred along Ben Stiller in Zoolander (2001) and stole the show as an eccentric fashion-designer-cum-terrorist Mugatu. This bolstered his career to a bonafide Hollywood star. Since then he has stolen the show in many box office hits; Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Anchor Man: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Elf, Stranger than Fiction and more recently with a different side to his usual acerbic wit with Everything Must Go.
This event was recorded from Vue Cinema Leicester Square, London on Tuesday 4 October and broadcast live via satellite at Vue Cinemas across the country.
