British acting legend Dame Angela Lansbury is to take part in a special Q&A session at London’s BFI Southbank in May.
The session will be preceded by a screening of Driving Miss Daisy: The Play which stars Dame Angela and James Earl Jones and was filmed at The Comedy Theatre, Melbourne in 2013.
Based on the 1989 film of the same name, the play tells the story of the decades-long relationship between a stubborn Southern matriarch and her compassionate chauffeur.
An iconic tale of pride, changing times and the transformative power of friendship, the play has warmed the hearts of millions of theatregoers worldwide.
A spokesperson for the BFI said the Q&A with Lansbury “will provide audiences with an insight in to her motivations for taking on the role, as well as providing an opportunity to look back at her incredible career in film and on the stage.”
