Colin Firth Set for West End Return
According to The Daily Mail, the 50-year-old King’s Speech star has been cast in the Harold Pinter classic, Betrayal. Firth’s last West End performance was in 2000, when he played Ned/Walker in Three Days of Rain at London’s Donmar Warehouse.
In Betrayal, which is slated to open this fall, Firth’s character of Jerry will have an extra-marital affair with Emma, who will be played by Kristin Scott Thomas. Both Brits appeared together in Anthony Minghella‘s 1996 drama, The English Patient.
