British actress Francesca Annis is set to play the love interest of her real-life partner Ralph Fiennes' younger brother JOSEPH on the London stage.

The MACBETH star, 61, and Shakespeare In Love heart-throb Fiennes, 35, will star in EPITAPH FOR GEORGE DILLON in the British capital in September (05).

A theatre source says, "Francesca has just been cast opposite Joseph for Epitaph, which starts at the Comedy Theatre in the West End in September.

"Joseph plays George, a charismatic and bohemian aspiring actor, and Francesca will be one of four sisters, who is eventually seduced by George."
