Welsh stars Aneurin Barnard and Iwan Rheon will discover if they have won one of the most prestigious prizes in the theatrical world on Sunday evening as the Laurence Olivier Awards are held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
Aneurin Barnard with Spring Awakening co-star (and fellow Olivier nominee) Charlotte Wakefield at the Laurence Olivier Awards nominees lunch held earlier this month.
Barnard, originally from the Ogmore Vale, is up for a coveted gong in the best actor in a musical or entertainment category for his performance as Melchior Gabor in Spring Awakening - a musical adaptation of German playwright Frank Wedekind's controversial play.
His co-star and fellow Welsh actor Iwan Rheon starred opposite him in the production, staged at the Novello Theatre in Aldwych, London, as Moritz Stiefel. Rheon is up for the award of best supporting performance in a musical or entertainment.
