During the course of the evening, Spacey shared highlights from his life and was interviewed by Melvyn Bragg. The audience was also given the opportunity to ask questions.
Spacey won the Tony for Lost in Yonkers and was Tony-nominated for The Iceman Cometh. Among his film credits are American Beauty and The Usual Suspects, both of which earned him the Academy Award. He is the artistic director of the Old Vic, and as previously announced, will star in the title role of Richard III as part of the 2012 Bridge Project season.
