heading to the West End stage in Anton Chekhov’s play The Seagull. The show was postponed in 2020 due to COVID-19.

This won’t be the first time Clarke has made a turn from acting on screen to the stage—she made

her Broadway debut in 2013's production of Breakfast At Tiffany’s as the elusive Holly Golightly.

The character was made famous by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 film.

Unfortunately, her performance failed to capture the same adoration as Hepburn’s, with critics widely panning Clarke in the role.

The New York Times described Clarke’s Holly as “an under-age debutante trying very, very hard to pass for a sophisticated grown-up,”

while The Hollywood Reporter said Clarke contained “neither softness nor fragility in her grating Holly.”

While that type of criticism would make even the best of actors decide to scurry from the stage forever,

Clarke opens up in a new interview with the BBC about the “catastrophic failure” of her Broadway debut and returning to the West End.
