The Secret Love Life of Ophelia with Dame Helen Mirren

Hello all! I hope everyone is well and staying safe during the current situation!

I've been lucky enough to have been chosen alongside 39 other young actors following a nationwide casting call to perform in Steven Berkoff's The Secret Love Life of Ophelia with the Greenwich Theatre in London.

The play acts as a prequel/side-story to Hamlet, featuring letters written from Hamlet to Ophelia and vice-versa, penned by Berkoff in Shakespeare's standard Iambic Pentameter. Yesterday, the news was revealed that the final monologue will be performed by none other than Dame Helen Mirren herself as Gertrude, Hamlet's mother. 

I'm absoutly speechless that I'm to share a virtual stage with such an incredible legend and I hope you can all tune in to the premiere on YouTube at 7.30pm on Friday 31st July, where it will be available until August 14th.
