Casting News: Richard Madden Will Not Return To Romeo And Juliet At The Garrick, Freddie Fox Takes Over Role Of Romeo http://www.londontheatredirect.com/news/1794/Casting-News--Richard-Madden-Will-Not-Return-To-Romeo-And-Juliet-At-The-Garrick--Freddie-Fox-Takes-Over-Role-Of-Romeo.aspx

The Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company today sadly announced that due to medical advice, Richard Madden will not be returning to the company of Romeo and Juliet before the production completes its run on 13 August. Richard Madden injured his ankle last month whilst running and has been receiving physiotherapy since. However, although Richard is expected to make a full recovery, the injury to Richard’s ankle has not healed as quickly as hoped, and as a result his doctors have prescribed further rest which makes it impossible for him to return to the stage before the production closes.
