“Potter” Stars Tackle the Bard’s Greatest Tragedy
Harry Melling and Isabella Laughland, known for playing Dudley Dursley and Leanne in the Harry Potter films, are to co-star in Chichester Festival Theatre’s upcoming production of King Lear.
Melling and Laughland will play the Fool and Cordelia, respectively, alongside legendary stage and screen actor Frank Langella, in one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies.
The production will run for just 32 performances, opening this Thursday. For more information on the production and to purchase tickets, you can visit the theater’s website here.
