Christopher Hampton ropes in Maggie Smith for play after 12 years
Veteran actress Maggie Smith is all set to return to theatre after a long gap of 12 years. The 84-year-old will star in a new play "A German Life" by Christopher Hampton. It will be directed by Jonathan Kent, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
The "Harry Potter" fame actress will play the role of controversial real-life figure Brunhilde Pomsel in the drama. Pomsel had worked as a personal secretary to Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propaganda minister. She died aged 106 in 2017.
The play will be staged at the Bridge Theatre here later this year. Smith's last stage appearance was in a 2007 production of Edward Albee's "The Lady From Dubuque". She has won multiple awards for her work, including two Oscars and multiple Golden Globes and BAFTA awards.
