How do actors cope with failure? In a fascinating new insight to the world of being an actor, David Harewood (Homeland, Supergirl), persuades some of his famous friends and colleagues, including Damian Lewis (Wolf Hall, Homeland), Olivia Colman (Broadchurch, The Night Manager) Eddie Izzard (Hannibal, The Riches) and Zachary Quinto (Star Trek, American Horror Story), to sit down and talk about the F word - failure. Failure is a taboo subject in the precarious world of the actor but David takes us from drama school to the red carpet and beyond, on an interesting, behind-the-scenes journey that offers both elements of surprise and great humour. The contributors provide deeply personal reflections of their own mistakes, alongside amazing anecdotes, and David reveals his own unique stories of how failure has affected him. To many, acting seems like a career with tremendous rewards but to be successful and rise to the top you also have to take great risks. And with risk, failure is always a possibility. David Harewood's F Word is an original documentary that reveals the many ways that failure can affect performance and profession alike and the different ways actors learn to come to terms with the invisible weight always dangling above their heads.
