Branagh back to acting in 'Valkyrie'

NEW YORK, Oct. 9 (UPI) -- Northern Irish actor-filmmaker Kenneth Branagh says he loves directing, but every once in a while, it's nice to just be an actor on someone else's set.

Branagh, who recently helmed the re-make of "Sleuth" and an HBO adaptation of William Shakespeare's "As You Like It," will soon be seen in front of the camera in the Tom Cruise movie, "Valkyrie."


"It's always a relief and an enjoyable contrast to being the head of a logistical exercise, which directing partly is," Branagh told UPI in New York recently. "You use, I suppose, different parts of your creative makeup. But I like doing both… I'm done (with 'Valkyrie') and had a great time doing it and, (like 'Sleuth,') it also felt like a very good team."
