Zoe Wanamaker, the actress, at a memorial service for her father, Sam Wanamaker, in Southwark Cathedral, central London, yesterday. Mr Wanamaker, also an actor, died of cancer in December last year, aged 74, after spending almost 40 years leading the campaign to rebuild Shakespeare's Globe Theatre on its original site on the south bank of the Thames, close to the cathedral. The new Globe Theatre, which was first built in 1599, is scheduled to stage its first Shakespeare play next year. More than 700 stars of stage and screen attended the cathedral service.
