Derek Jacobi on stage fright

Sir Derek Jacobi, one of Britain's most distinguished actors, has written an autobiography - Derek Jacobi Aren't We All?

He made his acting debut at the age of seven in a local library production, and was playing Hamlet by the age of 18 at the Edinburgh festival.

Jacobi told BBC Breakfast how he was "in catatonic terror" after being struck with stage fright during his career.
