Drawing: Dominic West in Butley at the Duchess Theatre

Dominic West

In December last year British actor Dominic West and Prince Harry were part of three teams competing to reach the South Pole first on the trek to raise money for the charity Walking with the Wounded. The competition part of the race was cancelled due to hazardous weather conditions, so the teams combined forces to successfully reach the pole.

He is nominated for a TV BAFTA for his role as Richard Burton in Burton & Taylor. Helena Bonham Carter, who played Elizabeth Taylor, is also nominated.

In June 2011 Dominic took the title role in Simon Gray’s classic comedy Butley at the Duchess Theatre in London. Dominic is always great with ‘graphers and was more than happy to sign this rapid 4b pencil sketch at the stage door on the way in for a July Saturday matinee performance which I saw.
