It’s incredibly difficult to fill a theatre with material that isn’t Mamma Mia!,” he said, adding: “When they’re spending their hard-earned £85 for a theatre ticket, it’s got to have something to pull them in and whatever it takes to fill a house is what we do.”

Best known for parts in The Hobbit and BBC’s Spooks, Armitage clarified that he went into TV and film in light of the fact that he thought it would “bear the cost of [him] more chance to tackle more vital and greater parts in theater further down the line”.

Armitage was talking at the debut screening of the Old Vic’s coordinated effort with Digital Theater on The Crucible, in which he featured not long ago.

Recorded amid the play’s run, the screenings will now be indicated at silver screens the nation over on December 4 and 7.

The Crucible was steered by Yael Farber, who said that the knowledge of taping one of her plays “may be the start of an association with film” for her.
