- The movie "The Lion King" is based off Hamlet
- Hamlet is the world's most filmed story after Cinderella
- The original Hamlet was supposed to be quite fat
- Over 200 women have played the role of Hamlet on stage. The most recent being in 2006 when a theater company in Washington produced an all-female version of Hamlet.
I find this last fun fact especially intriguing considering that women during the Elizabethan period didn't act in plays. I'm interested in how they pulled that off, a play composed solely of women, even if they have to play males' parts. I guess they just find women with really deep voices...?
