Harry Lloyd to Star in The Print Room's NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND This Autumn

Harry Lloyd to Star in The Print Room's NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND This AutumnGAME OF THRONES' Harry Lloyd will return to the stage this October in a modern adaptation of NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND, a novella by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. The production previewed earlier this year in Paris. NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND will be the inaugural production at The Print Room's new venue, The Coronet in Notting Hill.

NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND is a monologue delivered by a man locked away from society by his own choosing. Both terrified and scornful of the real world, he shares the philosophy he has nurtured underground, explaining why he acts as he does. He tells stories from when he used to interact with others and we begin to understand both the madness and the pity of this tormented man as he gradually self-destructs.

You may remember, although not necessarily recognise, Lloyd as 'Viserys Targaryen' in the hugely successful and multiple award-winning first series of Sky Atlantic/HBO's GAME OF THRONES.

Lloyd also starred in the BBC's BAFTA and Emmy Award winning GREAT EXPECTATIONS, which aired to great acclaim, alongside Gillian Anderson and Ray Winstone. Coincidentally, in real life he is Charles Dickens' great-great-great grandson.

January 2012 saw Lloyd star alongside Meryl Streep as the young Dennis Thatcher in Phyllida Lloyd's Oscar winning biopic THE IRON LADY. Playing opposite Jim Broadbent (as Denis Thatcher), Alexandra Roach (young Lady Thatcher) Richard E. Grant and Anthony Head, the film was released to great success at the box office and award ceremonies alike.

Lloyd is an acclaimed theatre actor, having received standout reviews for BASH at the Trafalgar Studios (2007), A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE at the Duke of York (2009), GHOSTS at the Arcola (2009) for which he was honored with the Ian Charleston Commendation, the award-winning THE LITTLE DOG LAUGHED at The Garrick Theatre (2010) and THE DUCHESS OF MALFI at the Old Vic (2012).

Lloyd has had a number of scene-stealing turns in projects as diverse as Cary Fukunaga's cinematic adaptation of JANE EYRE (2011), DOCTOR WHO (BBC), the critically acclaimed and award winning HOLLOW CROWN (NBC/BBC), THE DEVIL'S WHORE (Channel 4) and ROBIN HOOD (BBC).

In December 2012, Channel Four's moving four-part drama THE FEAR, directed by BAFTA winning Michael Samuels, saw Lloyd playing the son of a gangster recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's, alongside Peter Mullan. Harry's critically acclaimed performance earned him a BAFTA nomination for Best Supporting Actor (2013).

Later this year Lloyd will star as the lead in both CLOSER TO THE MOON opposite Mark Strong and Vera Farmiga as a young cameraman in 1959 Communist Bucharest and in BIG SIGNIFICANT THINGS as a young man on a road trip down the Mississippi at a pivotal point in his life. Finally, Lloyd will also be seen in an opening cameo in Lone Scherfig's THE RIOT CLUB, based on the hit play from the Royal Court.

Recently, principal photography was wrapped on THEORY OF EVERYTHING, the new biopic of Stephen Hawking, starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones. Lloyd plays Brian, Stephen's best friend from his university days who follows him and his deteriorating condition throughout his fascinating life.

Earlier this year saw Harry's latest project, MANHATTAN, a 13-episode TV drama, airing in the US. Created by Sam Shaw (Masters of Sex) and directed by Tommy Schlamme (The West Wing) the show follows a group of physicists as they develop the world's first atomic bomb in 1942.
