    Kristin Scott Thomas stars in West End revival of #TheAudience at the Apollo Theatre from April 2015

    Bas Bamigboye in the Daily Mail has confirmed the rumours that Kristin Scott Thomas will star in a West End revival of The Audience by Peter Morgan. 

    Kristin Scott Thomas will ascend to the throne to portray Elizabeth II at the Apollo Theatre, sharing the crown with Helen Mirren, who’ll be playing the monarch on Broadway.

    ‘We’ll have two Queens, on either side of the pond,’ said director Stephen Daldry, who will direct both actresses in the role.
     
    According to the Daily Mail, Kristin Scott Thomas will star in a ‘re- imagining’ of The Audience, based on the Queen’s weekly meetings with some of the 12 Prime Ministers of her reign so far.
     
    "We’re totally thrilled. Not only is Kristin a great stage actress — she’ll bring an extraordinarily different version of Her Majesty,’ Daldry told the Daily Mail exclusively. ‘Kristin has this incredible magnetic power and astonishing charisma. We wouldn’t have done it without her. We’ve got Helen in New York, but if Kristin hadn’t wanted to do it in London, we wouldn’t have gone ahead."
     
    Daldry continued, "People who enjoyed Helen will be absolutely delighted to see another great actress of our age."
     
    "Helen has been dominating the role of the Queen for so long, and is brilliant in it. But it will be re‑thought and re-imagined with Kristin," Daldry added.
     
    Kristin Scott Thomas is currently starring in Electra at London's Old Vic.
