It is 11am on the morning after the Evening Standard Theatre Awards at The Old Vic and Billie Piper has a crushing hangover. The 34-year-old got a standing ovation when she won the Natasha Richardson Award for Best Actress for her career-making performance as Yerma, in a production at the Young Vic that reinvented Federico Garcia Lorca’s barren Spanish villager as a modern woman destroyed by her inability to have a child.
‘Oh crikey, thank you, I love this,’ Piper said from the stage. She told the play’s writer and director, Simon Stone: ‘You scared the s*** out of me and I thank you for it.’ To her mother, Mandy, her companion for the evening, she said simply: ‘I love you mum.’ After that, things got messy.
‘It was a great night, such fun, such an overwhelming experience,’ Piper croaks. ‘I just smoked an enormous amount of cigarettes and was shouting all night long. I got very, very drunk, but I didn’t realise I was drunk. I think I was pumped with adrenaline.’ During the star-studded ceremony, she sat at a relatively quiet table with the Young Vic boss, David Lan, and the polymathic director and producer Stephen ‘Billy Elliot’ Daldry — ‘people with the right level of commitment to the cause’ — and later found herself ‘at every given moment talking to someone deeply impressive. My mum kept her cool, even around Glenn Close, which was awesome’.
Billie attended the Evening Standard Theatre Awards in London on Sunday evening. She was nominated (& WON!) the ‘Best Actress’ award for ‘Yerma’! So proud of her, and she looked absolutely stunning. HQ photos below:

HBO series The Night Of may have wrapped up this past Sunday, but its breakout star Riz Ahmed is making his way to the big screen in his first leading role in neo-noir thriller City of Tiny Lights. The film follows private eye Tommy Akhtar (Ahmed) through modern-day London as his missing-person case devolves into a dangerous case of intrigue that drudges up secrets from his past.
The Pete Travis-directed film will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sept. 12.
Ahmed, who gained critical acclaim for his nuanced turn as a murder suspect in the HBO drama, joins the other side of the justice system as a detective in this new film, which Patrick Neate adapted from his own novel. With this film and an upcoming role in December’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Ahmed is a quickly rising star.
In this exclusive clip debuting at The Hollywood Reporter, a roughed-up Tommy visits ex-girlfriend Shelley (Billie Piper, Doctor Who) at the restaurant where she works. They exchange some playful banter. “Look at us, we’re old,” she says. “Speak for yourself,” he replies.
