WHAT’S ON STAGE – Full casting has been announced for Simon Evans’ production of Tracy Letts’ blackly comic thriller, Killer Joe, which opens at Trafalgar Studios in June.

Joining the previously announced Orlando Bloom will be Sophie Cookson (Gypsy, Netflix and Kingsman: The Secret Service), Adam Gillen (Amadeus, NT and Benidorm), Neve McIntosh (Doctor Who and The Replacement) and Steffan Rhodri (This House, West End and Gavin & Stacey).

Blooms stars as Joe Cooper, a policeman who doubles up as a killer-for-hire in this 1993 play which was adapted into a film in 2011 starring Matthew McConaughey in the title role.

Letts’ other plays include Bug (which Evans directed at Found111 in 2016), Superior Donuts, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning August: Osage County.

Killer Joe is produced by Emily Dobbs Productions and Empire Street Productions.

ELLE – Sophie Cookson isn’t what you’d imagine. She plays an ass-kicking spy named Roxy in Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle, a journalist fascinated with exorcisms in The Crucifixion, and most recently, a barista with a dark side and penchant for playing games in Gypsy. But in person, she’s remarkably normal. She’s the kind of celebrity who instantly makes you feel at ease, even though you’re about to photograph her at The Bristol, one of the fanciest hotels in Paris. The kind who jokes about drinking champagne on the job, travels with an old friend, and yes, has that English Rose charm you’d expect the Sussex, England-raised actress to have. In short, she’s the “cool girl” you want to pal around the city with. But she’s also got a lot going on (even though she describes her style as simple), like many of the roles she plays. And that’s why I was down to spend a few hours with the new face of Chanel time pieces.

How would you describe your personal style?
I think I’m really quite simple. I tend to really like something and then wear it to death. Quite minimal, quite boyish. I’m here wearing ripped jeans, Timberlands, and an old jumper of my mum’s so that kind of describes it: quite thrifty, androgynous, and simple.

How has working with Chanel influenced your style?
I’ve always loved rummaging through my mum’s wardrobe and finding classic pieces. I went through a phase where I rejected anything that was vaguely up-styled in any way and I just lived in a baggy jumper for a bit. I guess working with them again made me get in touch with that more feminine, graceful side which I think you can reject as a younger adult and find it again.

If you could trade style with any celebrity, who would it be?
I think Riley Keough is killing it at the moment. She has this punkish style going on and it always feels very genuine and very free and easy. I think that’s a great trick to a red carpet style. You really wearing it rather than the clothes wearing you. It has to feel like a whole entity. I’ve always really loved Kristen Stewart and all of the stuff she does with Chanel, it’s always very individual and a fresh take on it, which I like.
