William Gaminara, who has played Dr Leo Dalton in 11 series of BBC crime drama Silent Witness, will join hit West End courtroom drama Twelve Angry Men from 31 March.
Joining the production at the same time as fellow new jury member Tom Conti, Gaminara will be welcomed by original cast members Robert Vaughn and Jeff Fahey.
Described by The Sunday Telegraph as “The classiest, most intelligent show in the West End” when it opened in November, Twelve Angry Men is the tale of a jury deliberating about the case of a young delinquent accused of murdering his father. What appears a simple case at the show’s opening becomes something of a dilemma as prejudices are aired and preconceived ideas exposed. Discussions turn one way then another as it moves towards its nail-biting conclusion.
Gaminara has previously appeared in productions including Bloody Poetry (Hampstead Theatre) and The Children’s Hour (National Theatre), while on television his credits include Spooks and Dangerfield.
The full Twelve Angry Men cast from 31 March includes Luke Shaw, David Calvitto, Paul Antony-Barber, Edward Franklin, Andrew Frame, Sean Power, Christopher Ettridge, Robert Duncan and Jon Carver. The show has extended its run at the Garrick Theatre until 14 June.
