Joseph shared a photo of the Haymarket Theatre this morning, as preparations are underway for the opening of Mr Foote's Other Leg at the Haymarket Theatre on Wednesday 28th October. Tickets are available from here.  The play had wonderful reviews at Hampstead.

It's good to see Russell Beale snarling with vulgarity like a raddled old pole cat as he belittles Joseph Millson's handsome Garrick for his devotion to the Bard and Festival project in "Stretford," or trades affectionate insults and crude gossip with Garrick's doomed lover, Peg Woffington, deliciously played by Dervla Kirwan.

Banished: quietly brilliant scenes

Photographer Garry Lake shared these gorgeous new photos of Joseph on Twitter last night, and the Independent posted a lovely review for one of Joseph's scenes in episode 3. 

There’s no doubt Banished is heavy on plot (tonight we had the holy trinity of fighting, pregnancy and a suicide attempt), and there are enough Things Going On to stop us changing channels, but it works best when the strong cast and heavyweight writer are allowed the breathing space to work their magic.

Banished: Joseph Millson represents “bad man” with considerable glowering presence.

Banished begins tonight at 9pm on BBC 2. Some great previews have been shared online, including one for Joseph!

Jimmy McGovern creates and writes this historical drama, set in the penal colonies of New South Wales in 1788. Suffice to say that the setting, while both picturesque and threatening, is more a backdrop for a squaring off of the writer’s moral absolutes: cheeky lags, rotten redcoats, all playing their part in an immediately recognisable value system. Russell Tovey is the honourable Wheeler, and MyAnna Buring is the feisty Elizabeth Quinn. Casino Royale veteran Joseph Millson represents “bad man” with considerable glowering presence. Guardian

How Did I Get Here?: 4 star review from The Stage

A lovely review for Joseph's recent radio 4 play 'How Did I Get Here' has been posted by The Stage. The play is available to listen again on BBC iPlayer.

Jonathan Myerson’s play plunges into the disturbing, schizophrenic heart of dementia, the presence almost of conjoined twins, the person that was and the person that is, by portraying them both as equally present.

Grandad (Benjamin Whitrow) is dodderish and quivery, his speech reduced by dementia to a haphazard semantic patchwork. He co-exists with Dad, a vigorous 38-year-old version of the same man, played by Joseph Millson, known for his many classic theatre roles and an increasing presence in radio drama. His feisty, sometimes tetchy persona is informed by vulnerable undercurrents, glimpses of himself in transition into Grandad’s reduced state.

A new interview with Joseph, promoting the release yesterday of the US DVD for The Dead 2: India, has been shared by Rama's Screen. Read it in full on the site.

Rama’s SCREEN: Were you a fan of the first film? Are you a fan of zombie movies in general?

Joseph Millson: “I was certainly a fan of Howard and Jon Ford, I’ve known them for a long time, I was thrilled for them when I saw that come out. I thought it was a beautifully made film, ya know, the art house zombie film, ya, it was beautiful, really beautiful.”

RS: How much of a cultural shock it was for you when you arrived and interacted with the locals in India?
