About Freddie Fox
Rising star Freddie Fox returns to the West End in Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband.
Freddie Fox was most recently on stage opposite Tom Hollander in the critically acclaimed production of Travesties.
Prior to that he was parachuted into the role of Romeo in Kenneth Branagh’s production of Romeo & Juliet at the Garrick Theatre when both the lead and understudy were unable to perform due to injury. His ability to slip into the role at short notice, no doubt made possible by having played the role to great acclaim in a Sheffield Theatre production, for which he was nominated for an Ian Charleson Award.
A member of the Fox acting dynasty, Freddie is the son of actors Edward Fox and Joanna David, brother to Emilia Fox, nephew of James Fox, cousin of Laurence Fox, godson of John Mortimer and great grandson of famous dramatist Frederick Lonsdale,
