My blog has quite a lot of posts about Samuel West (On Chesil Beach and Darkest Hour) and Charles Edwards (My Fair Lady Australian tour and The Halcyon).
I have also written some posts about diversity in the entertainment industry.

Sam, Frances de la Tour, Susan Wooldridge, Charlotte Cornwell, Adjoa Andoh and Jonathan Pryce will perform in Voices for Cuba: an Evening of Music and Spoken Word at the Barbican on 7 March (via @voices4the5).
Tonight's concert at The Hexagon was featured as a "Live Choice" in the BBC Music Magazine (February 2014 issue). Sam is the narrator for Carnival of the Animals.

Armstrong and Miller is being repeated on BBC Radio 4 Extra on Mondays. Episode 1 will be available on iPlayer for 6 more days.

Sam finished filming Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell this week (his Twitter, @exitthelemming).
He will play Benedict in Suffragette. The film's cast includes Carey Mulligan, Romola Garai, Ben Whishaw and Helena Bonham Carter (Screen Daily and @exitthelemming).

Last week, Sam gave a masterclass at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (@exitthelemming and @SophCotts).

In 2013, Sam played Edvard Munch in a rehearsed reading of Edvard by Jack Shepherd. The reading took place at RADA; it was directed by Michael Kingsbury and Christie Banks played Eva (Spellbound Productions).
