"Rufus Sewell was perfectly cast as the wily king in thrall to, and under the spell of, his tempestuous mistress Lady Castlemaine...."
The Scotsman Evening News - November 17, 2003                                                      
"He (Charles) was multi-faceted. Rufus not only looks like him, but has this great ability in his acting to show charm, humour and generosity of spirit. He can convey the complexity of the character as well as warmth.  He is also very sexy, which is what Charles was."
Adrian Hodges, screenwriter
"We were absolutely thrilled to get him,  Rufus has tremendous presence and natural authority and the camera loves him. He's so charming and  people say that Charles was either the most cynical, ruthless king inhistory or the most charming.  Rufus has the ability to show both sides of the man.   It's a massive part for him but he's doing it with such good humour."

Kate Harwood, producer

"One of the better BBC costume dramas of recent years, 2003's Charles II: The Power and the Passion depends very strongly on its central performance. Fortunately, Rufus Sewell is admirable throughout as the saturnine, witty monarch who has retained popular fondness down the centuries in spite of his conscientious adherence to the bad and losing cause of absolute monarchy.

                Rufus reads James Bond! 
                   Details from Penguin Books

                            The Interview 


To many people, Sean Connery - or Roger Moore - is James Bond. So Rufus Sewell, as reader of this 007 series, has an obligation to vanquish these images from listeners' minds and replace them with the picture etched by Fleming of man with a 'cruel mouth' and 'a scar down his right cheek'. He succeeds so well that it's now possible to visualise these stories afresh, to be newly horrified by the smallest act of indiscriminate violence. When Bond has his little finger broken by Tee Hee in Live and Let Die , the sickening crunch vibrates through the tape machine. Sewell also succeeds in reinforcing the cruelty of Fleming's characters, tapping into British sensitivities as Goldfinger casually declares of his cat: 'I'm tired of seeing this animal around. Here, have it for dinner.' The remark to his Korean butler, Oddjob, is both derogatory and designed to shock the animal-loving British people.
The Observer (London) 7 April 2002

    "LUTHER" by John Osborne, presented at London's
                 Royal National Theatre, fall 2001

"Rufus Sewell is the ideal actor to play him. Tense and controlled, the big, dark eyes both watchful and inward-
looking, he turns before you into a public solitary...... Sewell does not overplay the physical aspect: he is portraying the burden and the torment of a deeply personal faith that has to pay a physical price as well. As the play goes on, his face looks more and more like Cranach's famous paintings and engravings of Luther: bleak and bony, intense but vulnerable."
The London Sunday Times 14 October 2001
