“Potter” Actors Attend 58th London Evening Standard Theatre Awards
Sunday evening saw Hollywood A-listers rub shoulders with British stage legends at the 2012 London Evening Standard Theatre Awards, held at the Savoy Hotel in London. Among the stars present at last night’s ceremony which celebrates the very best of British theatre, were a number of the Harry Potter cast, many of which took to the stage to present and receive awards.
Imelda Staunton, known for playing Professor Umbridge, accepted the Ned Sherrin Award for Best Musical for “Sweeney Todd” in which she starred as Mrs. Lovett, whilst Bill Nighy (Scrimgeour) and Ralph Fiennes (Voldemort) presented the Editor’s Award and the Best Play Award, respectively. Also in attendance was Helen McCrory (Narcissa Malfoy), accompanied by her husband Damien Lewis, and Frances de la Tour (Madame Maxime). The night was hosted by British comic actor, James Corden.
