Lennie James as Oberon

Oberon (Lennie James)

Regal and dignified, Oberon's the King of the Fairies. Unfortunately, this weekend he's got a job to do - save Theo and Polly's marriage - and his Queen Titania isn't helping at all. Can he swallow his pride and save his own relationship, or is his temper too much to control?

Lennie James

Since graduating from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama* in 1988, Lennie James has appeared in numerous films, including playing Jeb Walker in the Lost in Space movie, Sol in Guy Ritchie film Snatch and Alan Erasmus in the Factory Records biopic 24 Hour Party People.

His TV roles include the roles of Matt Lomas in BBC crime miniseries Undercover Heart, Lee Kingsley in hard-hitting prison drama Buried, and Kris Bumstead in Cold Feet.

His many theatre roles include parts in Fallout at the Royal Court Theatre, and plenty of Shakespeare - he's acted in Hamlet, Two Gentlemen of Verona, Macbeth and Pericles.
