Leading Actors

Dame Harriet Walter

Returning to the RSC with Sir Anthony Sher in a spell-binding production of Arthur Miller's Death Of A Salesman, Harriet Walter remains a brilliant, engmatic theatrical presence.

Peter Capaldi

Mark Rylance

After setting his seal on the role of Thomas Cromwell, in the TV adaptation of Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall, Mark Rylance wowed audiences at the Sam Wanamaker PLayhouse early in 2015 with his performance in Farinlli and the King.

Dame Judi Dench

She may have left James Bond behind, after seven definitive performances as M, but Dame Judi has no intention of retiring. She opens Kenneth Branagh's Garrick residency in October 2015, starring in The Winter's Tale.

Legendary Director

Sir Kenneth Branagh

Fresh from his live-action film of Cinderella, the great Shakespearean will be running a year of theatre in London's Garrick Theatre from autumn 2015, attracting stars of stage and screeen to perform in plays by John Osborne, Terence Rattigan, Francis Veber and, of course, the Bard himself.

Broadcasting Greats

Jon Snow

Awarded a BAFTA Fellowship in 2015, Jon Snow is the longest-serving news anchor on Channel 4 News, and unafraid of press and public alike in getting to the truth.
