Drawing: Joesph Fiennes

Joseph Fiennes

Joseph Alberic Twiselton-Wykeham-Fiennes simply signs Joe Fiennes. Just as well. He signed two sketches for me earlier this year while playing T E Laurence in Terrance Rattigan’s bio-drama ROSS at the Chichester Festival Theatre. The first was him in the Laurance of Arabia role and the second was this montage from two productions in which he played the title. Joe’s first professional stage appearance was in the West End in THE WOMAN IN BLACK in 1993, followed by A MONTH IN THE COUNTRY opposite Helen Mirren and John Hurt, which I was lucky enough to see. Joe has also appeared in some high profile films, including ELIZABETH and the Bard himself in SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE, for which he earned BAFTA and SAG Best Actor nominations.

In September 2005 he played George Dillion in EPITAPH FOR GEORGE DILLON at the Comedy Theatre  and Cyrano in CYRANO DE BERGERAC at Chichester in 2009 which are both depicted in my drawing.
