Greta Scacchi and Charles Edwards as Amanda and Victor in Private Lives at Theatre Royal, Bath (2005)
Found this lovely shot of Charlie Edwards in Strange Interlude that I’ve never seen before and thought I’d share (opens much bigger in a new tab)
Hi there! I just wanted to let you know that I had the blessed privilege of seeing "Blithe Spirit" on May 22nd and I got to say hi to Charles at the stage-door. :) I shook his hand, complimented his performance, and he said, "Thank you" with a genuine smile. He was really nice. And seeing Angela Lansbury up close at the stage-door was a whirlwind (a good one, though). My gracious....
Oh you lucky so-and-so, getting to see Angela up close! Since I only went to a matinee, I had no chance of meeting her, since the attendant guy told me she has a nap between performances ha!
Awww, yeah, I’m super glad of that. He really is a lovely wee chap. So tall, so gorgeous… Erm, *ahem* yes, quite.
He told me they were considering taking the production to Australia of all places, but that never came about, maybe due to AL’s other commitments, idk, but yeah, that would’ve been cool :)
Why so freaking adorable?

The Browning Version (2009)
Uljabaan’s reincarnation just… chilling away, there in the back… Yeah…
(Picture stolen - lovingly - from here)
After a WTOVPIC wikipedia update and official confirmation from series producer, edmorrish, I can tell you that Charlie’s character is a dude called Field Commander Uljabaan, only the freaking leader of an alien race called the Geonin, who have invaded the village of Cresdon Green. So, you know, his part is quite a big deal, guys. Julian Rhind-Tutt, Uljabaan’s original actor, wasn’t available for s2, so they drafted Edwards in to replace him, because they’re nice like that ;)
See, I told you I was gonna keep you updated, didn’t I? DIDN’T I?
So, y’all better go listen to series 1 (inc pilot) to familiarise yourselves, and go read up about Uljabaan and the rest of the characters. You’ll do that for me, won’t you? You have until October, k? Good. Now run along.
