ABOUT PLAYING UNDER THE PIANO:

From getting his big break as Third Shepherd in the school nativity play, to mistaking a Hollywood star for an estate agent, Hugh Bonneville creates a brilliantly vivid picture of a career on stage and screen. What is it like working with Judi Dench and Julia Roberts, or playing Robert De Niro’s right leg, or not being Gary Oldman, twice? A wickedly funny storyteller, Bonneville also writes with poignancy about his father’s dementia and of his mother, whose life in the secret service emerged only after her death.

Whether telling stories of working with divas, Dames, or a bear with a penchant for marmalade, this is a richly entertaining account of his life as an actor.

ABOUTHugh Bonneville:

Hugh Bonneville’s film credits include Notting Hill, Iris, The Monuments Men, as well as the Paddington movies and Downton Abbey movies. I Came By, a contemporary thriller by director Babak Anvari is currently on Netflix.

Hugh’s television roles include Ian Fletcher in the BAFTA-winning Twenty Twelve and W1A (BBC) and Robert Crawley in ITV’s global hit, Downton Abbey, for which he received nominations for a Golden Globe, two Emmys and along with his fellow cast members won three SAG Awards for Outstanding Ensemble in a Drama Series. He recently completed filming The Gold, a six-part drama about the 1983Brink’s-Mat bullion robbery for BBC One, iPlayer and Paramount+.

Hugh’s stage career spans more than three decades and includes seasons with the National Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company. His most recent appearances were in Enemy of the People and Shadowlands, both at Chichester Festival Theatre.
