  Felicity Kendal Tuesday 19 February 2002  
After years of creating roles in plays by such theatrical luminaries as Tom Stoppard and Michael Frayne, Felicity Kendal has for the first time taken over a role from another actor. It's probably a sign of just how much she wanted the part of Flora in the hit play Humble Boy that she agreed to tread the boards in the footsteps of no less a figure than Diana Rigg.

Felicity Kendal joins Jenni to tell her just what it was that attracted her to this comic-tragic version of Shakespeare's Hamlet.
For further details about Humble Boy, contact the Gielgud Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, London W1V 8AR Tel: 0870 890 1105
