But Zwick said that as Roberts was set on having Daniel Day-Lewis — who was unavailable — play opposite her as the titular bard, she ended up "sabotaging" her chemistry reads with the bevy of up-and-coming actors Zwick considered for the role, including Hugh Grant, Colin Firth, and Sean Bean.

“The rest of that day and every day of the week that followed went just as badly. I no longer have my cast lists, but among the yet-to-be-discovered young actors, I remember: Hugh Grant, Rupert Graves, Colin Firth, Sean Bean, Jeremy Northam. Julia found fault with all of them: one was stiff, another wasn’t romantic, and so on."
