Too much Swash in your Buckle

Just an aside re Actors especially RSC actors. There's only one performer of Shakespeare that I've been able to get past the acting with and that's Sir Ton, (Anthony Sher) . All the others, in my humble opinion, Act Too Much and are more concerned with shouting, filling their leather pants, swashbuckling, pacing the stage with a manly stride and/or behaving in a clich├ęd manner that would suggest a recent release from a mental institution which in turn is supposed to enable us an insight into our own tortured characters.
