Burnet, a British television star making his US stage debut, superbly conveys both Henry’s starry-eyed view of the law and his steely determination. His American accent is flawless.
From the New York Times
Guy Burnet nicely embodies a fresh-faced idealist tackling his first case
Burnet, a star of the U.K. soap “Hollyoaks,” makes an impressive New York bow as the dauntless attorney.
The British actor Burnet makes a sturdy New York debut as the impassioned legal eagle betrayed by family and his girlfriend
The British actor Burnet puts on an impressively convincing 1940s American accent and his character butts heads throughout the production with just about everyone from his client, to his brother Byron (John Stanisci), to his girlfriend Mary (Larisa Polonsky), who also happens to be his boss.
Guy Burnet (Henry Davidson) offers a performance of unquestionable veracity. He’s so good, you simply accept him as the brilliant, dogged, naïve Henry. Realizations flicker across his face, a pause before responding to verbal attack creates naturalistic timing, you can practically hear him think, and certainly feel the actor seethe. Burnet is as dynamic during trial as he is quietly attentive when struggling with Willie. Two handed dialogues are strong and sensitive. An actor to watch.
