Stage Stars Samantha Barks and Morfydd Clark Join INTERLUDE IN PRAGUE FilmStage stars Samantha Barks and Morfydd Clark are headed to Prague!

The Daily Mail writes that the pair of leading ladies will appear in the upcoming Mozart film INTERLUDE IN PRAGUE, opposite previously announced James Purefoy and Aneurin Barnard.

No word on Barks's role, but Clark will play 'Zuzanna', described as "an opera singer who meets and 'engages' with the composer (Barnard)."

Directed by John Stephenson with a screenplay by Brian Ashby, INTERLUDE IN PRAGUE is based on true-life events and is set in the city in 1787. Variety describes the project as "an intense and emotional narrative of love, lust and murder" that "follows the story of a few turbulent months in the short life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart that influenced the creation of the opera 'Don Giovanni.'"

Filming begins in Prague next month.

Barks will next be seen in the films BITTER HARVEST, NEW AMSTERDAM and CHOCOLATE CAKE. She recently led the Berkeley Rep premiere of the musical adaptation of AMÉLIE. Her theatre credits include CHICAGO at The Hollywood Bowl, OLIVER! and CABARET on tour in the UK, and the West End's LES MISERABLES (as well as its 25th anniversary show at the O2). She also starred as 'Eponine' in Tom Hooper's film version LES MIS.

Clark recently appeared on in the BBC movie A POET IN NEW YORK and on the big screen in THE FALLING, LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP and PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES. A stage vet, the actress recently starred in Gary Owen's new play VIOLENCE AND SON at the Royal Court upstairs, in ROMEO AND JULIET at the Crucible, and in LES LIAISONS DANGEREUSES at Donmar Warehouse.
