New role: Richard Armitage is to star in a new production of The Crucible

Newcomer Samantha Colley has been picked to appear with Hobbit heartthrob Richard Armitage in one of the year’s most important theatrical productions.

The 23-year-old from the West Country will form a lustful - but highly dangerous - liaison with Armitage in a new production of Arthur Miller’s classic The Crucible, which begins performances at the Old Vic Theatre on June 24.

She will play Abigail Williams, a love-struck girl who persuades god-fearing (and married)  John Proctor to ‘lapse’, and then, when he doesn’t want to ‘lapse’ any more, charts a spiteful course for revenge in 17th-century Salem, Massachusetts.
