British supermodel and actress Lily Cole joins the cast of The Last Days of Troy at Royal Exchange during May and June. She will be playing Helen of Troy in the world premiere of poet and author Simon Armitage’s new play.  The play is a take on Homer’s Iliad, and includes the story of the Trojan horse. Cole has, perhaps most famously, played opposite Heath Ledger in his last film, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. She was recently in Manchester promoting the skill-sharing network, Impossible.
