Game Of Thrones star Iain Glen has been forced to pull out of the Old Vic’s hit play FORTUNE’S FOOL due to an unknown illness. Understudy Patrick Cremin has been standing in for 52-year-old Glen for the last week, but doctors advised he should not return for medical reasons.

At the age of 52, actor Iain Glen has become a pin-up. At a time when his fine features have begun to ripen, when a waffle of wrinkles has appeared on his handsome brow, when his hairline is inching north as roles as a romantic lead head south, he has found himself hot, hot, hotter than ever.

He’s famed for taking on dark roles – but then Iain Glen has never been interested in the conventional. Meeting Iain Glen is scary.

  Now And Glen’ – Getting intimate with The Blue Room star Iain Glen. If Nicole Kidman was the primary reason for the feeding frenzy of press attention that engulfed The Blue Room on its London premiere, the fact is that she could not have done it alone. So director Sam Mendes fielded her the absolutely perfect partner: Iain Glen. The RADA-trained, Scottish-born alumnus of stage and screen is an

JANE EDWARDS TALKS TO NICOLE KIDMAN AND IAIN GLEN. In a Rehearsal room somewhere in south London Nicole Kidman and Iain Glen have been telling each other secrets that will never be revealed to Oprah Winfrey. They are rehearsing David Hare’s The Blue Room, a free adaptation of Reigen by Arthur Schnitzler, known more commonly as La Ronde, since the classic 1950s film by Max Ophuls.
