Mark Strong - Mark Strong To Return To London Stage After 12-Year Absence

Subscribe To:

British actor Mark Strong is to return to his theatre roots in London more than 10 years after his last stint on stage.

The Zero Dark Thirty star, who began his acting career with Britain's Royal Shakespeare Company, was last seen on the London stage in 2002, in a double bill of Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya and William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night as part of director Sam Mendes' last season at the Donmar Warehouse theatre.

Strong went on to focus on his Hollywood career, landing roles in films such as Sherlock Holmes with Robert Downey, Jr., Kick-Ass and Green Lantern, but now he is heading home to London to star in a new production of Arthur Miller's A View From The Bridge.

He says of his long absence from the stage, "I never intended to be away so long... It (Hollywood) was a new environment for me and I just wanted to see what it was like doing movies... (But) I miss being able to go into a rehearsal room and think about what you're saying."

A View From The Bridge will debut at the Young Vic theatre in London in April (14).

A 2009 revival of the play on Broadway starred Liev Schreiber opposite Scarlett Johansson, who won a Tony Award for her performance.
