The actor who portrayed Craig Owens in “Doctor Who” is now a Tony Award winning actor. James Corden won a Tony for Best Leading Actor in a Play. Corden, who is currently in the Broadway show, “One Man, Two Guvnors” gave a very emotional speech at last night’s award ceremony. His character, Francis Henshall, is the main character in this new production based on the Italian show “A Servant of Two Masters”.
James Corden is known to “Doctor Who” fans as Craig Owens, a recurring character that begins as The Doctor’s flat mate. Craig has something strange going on above his flat, and The Doctor helps to unravel the mystery and shows him how much he loves his best friend Sophie. Later, The Doctor and Craig join together to battle The Cybermen who have invaded Craig’s town.
As one of Britain’s favorite comedians, Corden has starred in and co-created such comedies as “Gavin & Stacy” and “Home & Corden”. He was recently in the news as the host of the 2012 Brit Awards, where he cut off Adele’s acceptance speech.
