Edward Fox steps in for an injured Robert Hardy in 'The Audience.'

BAFTA-winning actor Edward Fox will replace injured star Robert Hardy as Winston Churchill in the West End production of The Audience. Hardy recently left the production after suffering a fall and cracked ribs. Written by Peter Morgan and starring Oscar winner Helen Mirren, The Audience plays the Gielgud Theatre through June 15.

Directed by Stephen Daldry, The Audience spans 60 years and tells the story of Queen Elizabeth II (Mirren) and the 12 Prime Ministers who served under her reign. Every week, the Queen sits down with England’s Prime Minister for a private meeting at Buckingham Palace. The Audience is an inside look at these secretive meetings.

Fox is known for his performance as Edward VIII in Thames Television’s Edward and Mrs. Simpson. He won a BAFTA for Best Supporting Actor in The Go Between. His other screen credits include Day of the Jackal, A Bridge Too Far, Ghandi, The Shooting Party, The Dresser, Daniel Deronda, Oliver Twist and The Importance of Being Ernest. His vast stage appearances include Knuckle, A Letter of Resignation, The Family Reunion at the Vaudeville, Lloyd George Knew My Father, The Chiltern Hundreds, The Old Masters, Four Quartets, Legal Fictions and the solo show Trollope.
