Armadillo Frain Doubles Up for Stage Return???
Date: 1 November 2001
James Frain looks set to return to the London stage, possibly in two major projects in the new year. The young actor who's found considerable success in Hollywood of late is being lined up to play Edmund, alongside Oliver Ford Davies' King Lear, at the Almeida in King's Cross in January. He's also been connected with Tom Stoppard's still untitled Russian trilogy, which is due to receive its world premiere under Trevor Nunn's direction at the National in the spring. Frain has just starred as Lorimer Black in the BBC's television adaptation of William Boyd's Armadillo. On film, his credits include Where the Heart Is, Sunshine, Reindeer Games, Elizabeth and Hilary and Jackie, and he is soon to star in a major release of The Count of Monte Cristo. His last stage role was in March 2000 in the Royal Court's production of Christopher Shinn's Other People.
