The London Palladium and The King and I have welcomed back to the stage Ruthie Ann Miles with a warm embrace. Miles, who was forced to quit performing after a devastating accident earlier in the year, reprises the role of Lady Thiang - the King of Siam's (Ken Watanabe) chief wife - to great acclaim. Whilst the show was still running on Broadway, the part won her multiple awards (including a Tony) and nominations so it's not a surprise that she is stunning in it.
