Sketch: Jeremy Northam, Hay Fever at the Noel Coward Theatre

Hay Fever Jeremy Northam

British actor Jeremy Northam returned to London’s West End after a lengthy absence to play the bamboozled uptight diplomat Richard Greatham in the 2012 revival of Noël Coward’s Hay Fever at the theatre named after the celebrated playwright.

Jeremy’s stage career got off to an auspicious beginning, replacing Daniel Day Lewis in the role of Hamlet at the National in 1989 before winning an Olivier Award a year later for his performance in The Voysey Inheritance.

“A peach of a performance… quivering with shy lust,” wrote Michael Billington in The Guardian of Jeremy’s performance in Hay Fever. Among Jeremy’s many acclaimed screen roles is as Welsh actor and signer Ivor Novello in Gosford Park (2012) “I think this performance by Jeremy Northam is one of the really, best performances I’ve ever seen in film” said its director, Robert Altman.
