Dominic West to 'narrate' piano piece

Dominic West to 'narrate' piano piece
Will narrate a piano piece
Hollywood actor Dominic West is to give audiences at a charity event a surprise like no other – he's going to be narrating a special piano performance.

West, who shot to fame in the hit US TV show The Wire and wowed audiences with performances in films like 300 and Centurion, has himself been quietly learning how to play the instrument in-between projects.

He will now put his speaking skills to the test in Derbyshire, when he takes to the stage alongside Lucy Parham, a virtuoso pianist, to tell the story of Claude Debussy. Unfortunately, he won't be showing off his own musical skills.

The Derbyshire Times reported that this is all for the charity Helen's Trust, which helps support people living with incurable diseases.

"Having the opportunity to perform back in my home area is always a buzz for me," said the British actor.

"Lucy's work is inspirational and I'm honoured to be able to work alongside her, raising money for such a worthy charity as Helen's Trust in the process."

West's next film is the Disney science epic John Carter, which tells the story of an American soldier from the Confederate army who is transported to Mars.
