George Blagden

If there was a huge asteroid hurtling toward Earth threatening to destroy life as we know it and you could see one more show before you die, what would it be? It can be anything you want - a show you’ve seen before, one that you wish you’d seen, or something you’ve made up entirely. What would be YOUR Last Show on Earth? This is the podcast in which we ask a special guest the big, BIG question that nobody ever needed or bothered to ask. 


Our guest this episode is George Blagden


George Blagden is an English actor who has enjoyed a successful career in theatre, film who also enjoys a nice sideline in voiceovers and audiobooks.


He is married to fellow actor Laura Pitt-Pulford and they have a young son called Arlo. He is best known for his role as Louis XIV in the French-produced television series drama Versailles as Grantaire in the 2012 film adaptation of Les Misérables and Athelstan in the television series Vikings. He has narrated many audiobooks including the Penguin Classics audiobook version of Homer’s The Odyssey and an immersive audiovisual tour for the Circus Maximus in Rome written by Margaret George for the BARDEUM mobile app. (We don't know what this is either). Theatre credits include Tartuffe, Into the Woods and the role of PJ in the 2018 revival of Stephen Sondheim's musical comedy, Company, at the Gielgud Theatre in the West End.


(Disclaimer - Due to the nature of the George's Last Show choice this episode does feature some very fruity language...apologies. If you are easily offended by the F word, please send your complaints to us and they will be duly ignored).
