Thank you so much!! :)
Actor Harry Lloyd is all set to be the next big thing. If you don’t know his name already you may recall his face from one of his scene-stealing parts on TV: as the alien-possessed Edwardian schoolboy Jeremy Baines in Doctor Who or the deranged Viserys Targaryen in Game of Thrones.
Theatre-goers may better remember him as the villainous Ferdinand to Eve Best’s Duchess of Malfi at the Old Vic. In the cinema he has played the young Denis Thatcher in The Iron Lady, complete with prosthetic teeth (he kept them as his party trick), and this season he appears in two of the biggest films: in a cameo as Lord Riot in the The Riot Club and as Brian, the young sidekick to Eddie Redmayne’s Stephen Hawking, in The Theory of Everything. With a showreel like that superstardom is surely only a cult role away.
In the meantime, Lloyd remains able to meet me — unmolested by fans — in his favourite café, the English Restaurant, close to where he lives in Spitalfields. At 30 he is tall, dark and devilishly handsome, with floppy hair and a pointed courtier’s beard that he has grown to play Harry Percy, the hapless young suitor to Anne Boleyn in the BBC’s forthcoming adaptation of Wolf Hall.
Fresh from filming, he is still high on the experience. “I have these two big scenes with Mark Rylance [playing Thomas Cromwell], which is an actor’s dream. But they cut me a Tudor fringe which I’m trying to grow out.”
