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
