Michael Praed
Misery is one of Stephen King’s most enduringly disturbing thrillers… it tells the story of Paul Sheldon, world famou author of a series of best-selling romance novels, who is crippled in a car crash. Instead of waking up in hospital, he comes to in a filthy, silapidated farmhouse, isolated from the outside world and occupied by his biggest fan, Annie Wilkes. the good news is that Annie is a trained nurse, the bad news is that she is also a violent psychopath…

Michael Praed stars as Paul Sheldon, while Susan Penhaligon plays Annie Wilkes.
