Still hungry for the Wolf? Where to see your favourite Wolf Hall actors in the cinema and at the theatre in London
by OLIVIA WILLIAMS – Evening Standard – 25 February 2015
We are going to miss the drama of Wolf Hall, all whispered threats, candlelit stares and Henry VIII’s alarming mood swings. Hilary Mantel’s bewitching tale was a televisual feast but now the final episode has aired, where will we get our fix of all those fine British actors?
Luckily, many of the key Wolf Hall players will be treading the boards across London this spring. You’ll be able to experience Damian Lewis’s husky repartee and Mark Rylance’s brooding looks in the flesh. Failing that, you can head to the cinema to watch Mark Gatiss continue his sinister streak in Victor Frankenstein, or Tom Holland still having a hard time — on an 1820 whaling trip in In the Heart of the Sea.
Here’s a rundown of where you can see your favourite Wolf Hallers next.
Damian Lewis (Henry VIII)
See him in: American Buffalo, Wyndham’s Theatre, Apr 16-Jun 27
What to expect: From blue blood to blue collar as Lewis swaps his tights and codpiece for worker’s overalls in David Mamet’s 1970s drama. He’s dusting off his Homeland-perfected American accent to play a small-time Chicago crook planning a heist. There won’t be quite the wheeler-dealing of Henry’s court, but expect betrayal and dark comedy in Lewis’s first West End performance since he starred in The Misanthrope with Keira Knightley in 2009.
