Despite the fact that he worked on the original theatrical production of Cyrano, Peter Dinklage, 52, looks dashing in a blue three-piece suit as he meets his wife Erica Schmidt, 46, for a screening of Cyrano in New York City.
Peter Dinklage and his wife Erica Schmidt were every inch the picture-perfect couple as they joined a bevy of celebs for a screening of his romance musical Cyrano in New York City, after partnering on the original stage version in 2019.
The Game Of Thrones star, who plays the titular character Cyrano de Bergerac, attended the red carpet for the star-studded screening alongside his wife, who created the film’s screenplay based on her own theatrical adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s 1897 play.
For the occasion, Peter cut a handsome figure in a dark blue three-piece suit, while his wife of more than 16 years went for a loose-fitting black velvet dress.
Dinklage, 52, wore a blue suit with a white dress shirt, grey suede boots, and a purple tie, while maintaining his mustache and goatee look from earlier in the evening.
After joining forces for the big-screen adaption of the musica, the New Jersey native kept Schmidt close while sharing the limelight on the red carpet with her.
Erika, who tied the knot with Peter in 2005, wore a glitzy loose-fitting black velvet gown with a simple V neck front, and her glossy auburn hair were brushed back in a bun.
Schmidt, 46, has established herself as a leading lady in the theatre industry, having appeared in shows such as The Sorcerer, All The Fine Boys, and Cyrano.
The story of Cyrano de Bergerac (Dinklage) as he aches for the affections of the beautiful Roxanne (Haley Bennett), who has fallen in love with another man, Christian de Neuvillette, is told in Erica’s musical adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s classic drama (Kelvin Harrison Jr.).
Aware that his social standing and physical looks will keep him and Roxanne apart for the rest of his life, Cyrano gives Christian his talents as a great poet in an effort to draw the two of them closer together.
Cyrano is directed by Joe Wright, who is best known for his work on films such as Pride & Prejudice (2005), Atonement (2007), Hanna (2011), Anna Karenina (2012), and Darkest Hour (2017). The film also stars Ben Mendelsohn, Bashir Salahuddin, Monica Dolan, Joshua James, and Ray Strachan, among other actors.
After having its world premiere at the 48th Telluride Film Festival in September 2021, the film had a one-week theatrical run in Los Angeles this past December, following which it was released on DVD.
It has already received nominations for awards, including Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Best Actor In A Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy (Dinklage) at the 79th Golden Globe Awards, as well as four nominations at the 75th British Academy Film Awards and a nomination for Best Costume Design at the 94th Academy Awards. The film is currently in theaters.
A wide theatrical release of Cyrano is scheduled on February 25 in both the U.S. and the United Kingdom.
