Laertes, was your father dear to you?

Claudius sure knows how to ask an inflammatory question. My god.
This one reminds me of kids I’ve known, usually somewhere on the autism spectrum. It makes me wonder what would happen if you played Claudius on the spectrum. Would he engender some more sympathy that way? Would he make different kinds of sense? He’s smooth enough to get social interactions right a lot of the time but the times where he steers wrong, those are pretty wrong.
