It is a role he first played more than 30 years ago and now Nigel Havers is taking on the same part in the latest production of The Importance of Being Earnest.
In the new show, which opens at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London, the cast is made up of 'older' actors, with Havers admitting he is one of the youngest members.
The BBC's Tim Masters met Havers before opening night.
