Last Update: 28 June 2006
The Daily Mail, Tuesday August 5th, 1997 carried a feature article on the UK TV drama This Life. The part of 'Miles' was played by Jack Davenport, who, it was reported, was "currently filming Macbeth with Sean Bean".
In fact, Macbeth (1998), directed by Michael Bogdanov, stars Sean Pertwee in the title role, with Greta Scacchi as Lady Macbeth and Jack Davenport as Malcolm.
