Actress mistook author Le Carre

Actress Olivia Colman has admitted she had no idea she was talking to the famous novelist John Le Carre about starring in a TV adaptation of one of his books because she did not know his real name.

Colman (41) stars in The Night Manager, a BBC adaptation of the novel by Le Carre, whose real name is David Cornwell.

"At the read-through, I was chatting away to someone called David Cornwell, telling him how great the story was, without realising that he was John Le Carre," she said.
