Michael sheen as both Blair and Nero - what are they telling us ?

It seems that Michael Sheen has played both Blair and Nero lately. ( Thanks to NTL's watch again facility I've only just seen the Nero episode of ANCIENT ROME: THE RISE AND FALL OF AN EMPIRE.

As Nero he plays a man who loses his mind, but believes he is a god as no one stops him when he does things he should be stopped for.

I wonder how much of a strain it was to play both characters ?
