Nicole Kidman is making a return to the West End after 17 years to perform in a play in memory of her father.
Photograph 51 is based on scientists in a race to discover the ‘secret of life’ and Nicole will play Rosalind Franklin, a pioneer of DNA research in London in the Fifties.
Nicole explained that after she received the script last year, she spoke to her father, Dr Antony Kidman, about it.
‘My dad was a biochemist and he knew all about Rosalind Franklin,’ she said. ‘When I told him I was thinking about doing it, he was very excited. Then my dad passed away last September. I went: “All right, I need to do this for my father.” ‘
