“Do not go gentle into that good night… old age should burn and rave at close of day. Rage, rage, against the dying of the light.”

As the widely anticipated Interstellar hits cinemas, Michael Caine has spoken about how he managed to throw the above quotation into the film by accident, how he used to drink with Dylan Thomas (without ever quite managing to keep up with the infamous poet), and how he didn’t learn anything at school other than how to be a damn fine actor – mainly, we expect, because he was rarely there.
