Gemma Jones to appear with Kevin Spacey in Richard III

Harry Potter actress Gemma Jones is among the names listed in the final cast for Sam Mendes's production of Richard III at the Old Vic.

Jones will be starring alongside Kevin Spacey in the title role, former Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) member Haydn Gwynne as Queen Elizabeth and Chuk Iwuji as Buckingham.

Gwynne has previously taken on roles in Billy Elliot: The Musical, both in the West End and on Broadway, while Iwuji performed in the RSC's The Histories, which scooped an Olivier Award.

Prior to her latest role as Queen Margaret in Richard III, which previews on June 18th 2011, Jones appeared in a big screen adaption of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility and Bridget Jones's Diary.

Richard III will be the final production of The Bridge Project, co-produced by the Old Vic, BAM and Neal Street, to entertain those on theatre breaks and will be heading on an international tour following its spell in the capital.

The production will be running at the Old Vic until September 11th 2011.
