Samantha Bond is the daughter, Amy, of David Hare's title, going against theatrical powerhouse Esme Allen (Dame Judi Dench) in an examination of the pair's mother-daughter relationship. Amy's View originally opened in June 1997 at London's National Theatre before transferring to the West End's Aldwych Theatre Jan. 17, 1998, where it closed April 18, 1998.
Bond recently left London's production of Shelagh Stephenson's The Memory of Water to cross over the Atlantic for Broadway's View. Other theatre credits include Three Tall Women, Man of the Moment, Much Ado About Nothing, Les Liasons Dangereuses, Romeo and Juliet and the Royal Shakespeare Company's The Winter's Tale and As You Like It. Like co-star Dench, Bond has logged time on two recent (James) Bond films, "Goldeneye" and "Tomorrow Never Dies," playing secretary Miss Moneypenny. She will reprise the role in the up coming "The World Is Not Enough."
Amy's View 's other Tony nomination is Dench's, for Best Leading Actress in a Play.
