Tom Holland’s much-anticipated return to the West End with “Romeo and Juliet” has now found its remaining cast members - who is joining him on stage?

While some of us were a little disappointed earlier in the year that Tom Holland’s big announcement was not a future Spider-Man movie, his return to London’s West End in the upcoming revival of “Romeo and Juliet” has more made up for that disappointment.

The production, to be directed by Jamie Lloyd for his newly independent production company, The Jamie Lloyd Company, has now seen the remaining characters from Shakespeare’s iconic tale of star-crossed lovers, be cast - including Juliet to Holland’s Romeo.

That role will be played by Francesca Amewudah-Rivers of “Bad Education” fame who revealed after the announcement: “I'm so grateful to be making my West End debut as Juliet with The Jamie Lloyd Company. It's a dream to be joining this team of incredible artists with Jamie at the helm. I'm excited to bring a fresh energy to this story alongside Tom, and to welcome new audiences to the theatre."

She will also be joined by former “Doctor Who” actress Freema Agyman as Nurse, Michael Balogun as Friar and Tomiwa Edun as Capulet.
