Aidan Turner has won “Best Actor in a Play” for his role as Padraic in “The Lieutenant of Inishmore” at the WhatsOnStage Awards tonight in London.
An early award was given to Adrian Scarsborough for his role in The Madness of King George. In his acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actor he said “I owe a debt of gratitude to all the voters who mistook me for Aidan Turner”. When Aidan gave his acceptance speech, he thanked the fans for voting and added “even if some of them were meant for Adrian Scarborough!”.
