Rupert Everett Straps Up His Boots To Play Napoleon’s Nemesis: “He’s A Tough, Salty Old Duke”

Overlooked in the fallout was a terrific performance by Rupert Everett as the Duke of Wellington, the stiff-upper-lip Brit who proves to be Napoleon’s nemesis at the Battle of Waterloo. Here, the laconic British actor reflects on the influences that fed into his portrayal of the Iron Duke.
