News   My Fair Lady's McCutcheon Lands Role in Hugh Grant Film

Martine McCutcheon won an Olivier Award for her role as Eliza Doolittle in Trevor Nunn's production of My Fair Lady at the National and at Drury Lane.

Now she is to play another lowly-born girl who is fallen for by a sophisticated and powerful man, when she appears opposite Hugh Grant in his new film, "Love Actually." The film, to be directed by Richard ("Four Weddings and a Funeral") Curtis, is about a new Prime Minister who falls in love with the tea girl on his first day at 10 Downing Street.
