Mark Strong and Nicola Walker to star in A View from the Bridge.
Mark Strong, who starred in Zero Dark Thirty, the 2012 American war thriller film, is returning to the stage after a 12-year absence to play the lead role in Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge at the Young Vic. Strong, whose other films include Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, will star as Eddie Carbone.
Nicola Walker will play Eddie’s wife, Beatrice. In 2013, Walker won an Olivier award for her performance in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Her television roles include starring in the BBC spy drama Spooks. Walker also stars in BBC One’s hit drama, Last Tango in Halifax, while Strong’s TV credits include The Long Firm and Prime Suspect.
Begium’s Ivo van Hove will direct A View from the Bridge, which opens at the Young Vic on 4th April 2014, and running through to 7th June 2014.
The director of Dutch theatre company Toneelgroep, van Hove is probably best known for adapting screenplays for the stage and he was the first theatre director to secure rights to adapt the works of film-makers Antonioni, Ingmar Bergman, John Cassavetes and Luchino Visconti.
The cast for A View from the Bridge also includes Michael Gould, Emun Elliot, Phoebe Fox, Richard Hansell, Luke Norris and Jonah Russell.
