Oh my LAWD! So incredibly honoured to announce that legendary British comedy actor and Olivier Award winner James Dreyfus is joining the cast of my film, Sequins, in the role of drag queen mentor, Mimi Le Purr.
James lit up our screens in 90's comedy series such as "The Thin Blue Line", playing Constable Kevin Goody, and Tom Farrell in Kathy Burke's hit sitcom, Gimme, Gimme Gimme. He's also known for his roles in "Absolutely Fabulous" and "My Hero." He also starred as Hugh Grant's introverted bookshop assistant, Martin, in "Notting Hill"
James has an extensive repertoire in the world of theatre. In 1998, he won an Olivier Award for Best Supporting Performance in a Musical for his role in "Lady in the Dark" at the National Theatre.
So excited to work with him on Sequins. His wealth of experience and talent will be a joy and honour to work with.
