Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint up for WhatsOn Stage awards

December 06, 2013

Harry Potter graduates Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint are among the nominees shortlisted for the only major UK theatre awards voted for entirely by the public.

Radcliffe is nominated in the best actor category of the 14th WhatsOnStage awards for his performance as Billy in The Cripple of Inishmaan.

He is up against Ben Whishaw for Mojo and Peter and Alice, James McAvoy for Macbeth, Lenny Henry for Fences and Rory Kinnear for Iago in the National Theatre's production of Othello. Kinnear also appears in the best new play category for his writing debut, The Herd.

Grint, making his stage debut as the endearingly dim Sweets in Mojo, is nominated in the London newcomer of the year. The category also includes actors Jack Huston (Strangers on a Train), Kyle Scatliffe (The Scottsboro Boys), Olivia Vinall (Othello) and the musician Tori Amos, who is nominated for her National Theatre musical The Light Princess.
