Griffiths opened on Broadway this fall in "Equus” alongside his "Harry Potter” co-star Daniel Radcliffe, with whom he recently starred in the West End revival of Peter Shaffer's award-winning play. He originated the role of Hector in Hytner's National Theatre production of "The History Boys” and earned an Olivier Award for Best Actor. Griffiths continued in the part on Broadway and won the Tony Award® for Best Leading Actor in a Play.
