How Shakespeare Changed My Life : RIP Earle Hyman

You may have already heard, but Earle Hyman, perhaps most known to modern audiences as the grandfather on The Cosby Show, passed away this weekend.

But did you know, other than the occasional Shakespeare skit on that show (for which, we point to Bardfilm), that Mr. Hyman was in fact an accomplished Shakespearean actor?  Here he is, from 2016, talking about How Shakespeare Changed My Life.

Rest in peace, Mr. Hyman. Flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.

Also, how did I not know about this series?!  Looks like there’s a good 50 episodes of famous people talking about nothing but Shakespeare.  I know what I’m doing over Thanksgiving break!
