Cover Stories: Alwaleed: Businessman Billionaire Prince; Caroline Michel; Index on Censorship
Friday 28 October 2005
Caroline Michel has just returned from her first Frankfurt as an agent - she joined William Morris only last month, the latest gamekeeper to turn poacher. And already her well-thumbed address book is paying dividends - she has taken on the representation of Richard Attenborough, a colleague of Michel's husband Matthew Evans, Labour's Chief Whip in the Lords. But it appears the project has long done the rounds and found no takers. Will La Michel's powers have the desired effect?
Freedom of expression has never been more threatened than it is now, so Sunday's fundraiser for Index on Censorship could scarcely be more timely. Stars of stage and screen, among them Christopher Eccleston and Saffron Burrows, will feature in a rehearsed reading of Rachel Wagstaff's Night Sky, "a tale of truth, lies love and cockroaches". The event takes place at 7pm on Sunday 30 October at London's Old Vic. Tickets from 0870 060 6628.
