VOTE: David Tennant Nominated For IARA Award For Best Actor
David Tennant has been nominated for Best Actor for his role in Don Juan In Soho in the IARA Awards.
He starred as DJ in a revival of the Patrick Marber play at London's Wyndham's Theatre from 17th March 207 - 10th June 2017.
Loosely based on Molière's tragicomedy 'Don Juan', it was a modern update that transported the action to contemporary London and followed the final adventures of its debauched protagonist - a cruel seducer who lives only for pleasure.
Marking ten years since its acclaimed run at the Donmar Warehouse, David Tennant led an electrifying cast, including Adrian Scarborough and Gawn Grainger.
The full list of nominees in David's category are as follows:
David Tennant (Don Juan in Soho)
John Boyega (Star Wars:The Last Jedi)
Chris Attoh (Swing)
Jack Perry Jones (Bang)
Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out)
Vijay Joseph (Mersal)
Zack Morris (Eastenders)
Jamie Lomas (Hollyoaks)
The IARA Awards - or International Achievement Recognition Awards - confers, highlight outstanding talents, laudable initiatives and recognise the hard work of those in Theatre, Music, Film/TV and the Fashion industry.
The awards put hard work, integrity and diversity at centre stage when some other award ceremonies opt for popularity. The awards aim to celebrate the hard work of individuals both on and off stage and recognise the collaborative effort needed to display or perform a work of art.
The IARA awards were set up as the first of their kind to recognise hard work and talent across the two industries, art and entertainment, from film producers, to fashion designers and music artists. Nominees are chosen for the difference they have made in their field and for being positive role models to today’s society and for the future.
The 2018 IARA ceremony, to take place in Canary Wharf on September 22nd 2018, is set to be a star-studded, opulent red carpet event, leaving no detail spared in order to show the gratitude and respect founders, judges and guests have for the people receiving the awards. Guests include dignitaries from the arts field and beyond, such as iconic fashion designers, community leaders and BBC film representatives.
