‘The Kremlin’s Geordie Spy’

Mark Rylance won the 2016 Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his portrayal of the Soviet Spy Rudolf Abel in Steven Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies.   But who was this ‘Rudolf Abel’?   And why did Rylance play him using what many said was a Scottish accent?   Discover the answers in tonight’s lecture by Vin Arthey.
