Nominees announced for Ian Charleson Award 2010

Harry Lloyd as Osvald in Ghosts

June 07, 2010

Harry Lloyd, Tunji Kasim and John Macmillan have been nominated for the 2010 Ian Charleson Award. The awards, named after the late Scottish stage actor, celebrate outstanding theatrical performances by actors under the age of thirty in Classical roles (defined as ones in plays written before 1914).

Harry is nominated for his performance as Oswald in the ATC's production of Ghosts at the Arcola, directed by Bijan Sheibani, described as "a young man bleached of hope" by the Evening Standard's Fiona Mountford.

Tunji Kasim receives his nomination for his work with the RSC ensemble, in particular the company's production of Julius Casear in which he played both Lucius and Romulus. John Macmillan, meanwhile, is nominated for two turns: first, as Malcolm in the Manchester Royal Exchange's production of Macbeth, and second, as Rosencrantz in the Donmar Warehouse's West End production of Hamlet, starring Jude Law and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
