First look pics of Sheila Atim and Ivanno Jeremiah in the West End revival of Nick Payne’s Constellations.
Nick Payne‘s beautiful and heartbreaking romance is revived at the Vaudeville Theatre with a twist: four different casts take turns to journey through the multiverse exploring the infinite possibilities of a relationship; each refracting the play afresh.
Sheila Atim MBE has garnered a host of accolades and awards that belie the fact she’s a relative newcomer to the industry. This year sees Sheila take on the role of ‘Mabel’ in Barry Jenkins’ The Underground Railroad on Amazon Prime, star alongside Halle Berry in Berry’s directorial debut, Bruised, and as a guest lead in Netflix’s new British crime drama series The Irregulars. Sheila plays series regular ‘Limehouse Nell’ in Hulu’s Harlots.
In 2018, Sheila won the Olivier Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Musical, for her performance as ‘Marianne Laine’ in Girl From The North Country at the Old Vic Theatre. She received rave reviews as ‘Emilia’, acting alongside Mark Rylance and Andre Holland in Othello at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London and has performed with the Royal Shakespeare Company, at the Donmar Warehouse and the National Theatre.
