Details of British actor Clive Owen's Broadway debut have leaked to the media thanks to Andrea Riseborough, who looks set to join him on the New York stage.

The two Brits were promoting their new movie at a junket in New York on Wednesday (29May13) when the actress was asked about her plans to return to the theatre - and let slip that she was planning to join her co-star onstage.

Riseborough told reporters, "I did a play in New York called Pride in 2010. I would love to come back and we've been thinking about something recently that I think would be pretty exciting. The only thing I can say is it might involve Clive and I again!"

Clearly not ready to make the announcement, a shocked Owen said, "She won't keep things quiet! There's nothing more to say, but, I've never had a Broadway debut. I did a lot of plays in London but never in New York".

The actor then quickly changed the subject and opened up about his theatrical past, recalling, "I trained in the theatre; I went to the Royal Academy for three years and the first thing I did was I toured a play all over the place. My first play in London might have been Design For Living.

"When I first started that's all I wanted to do was the stage.I'm very lucky with the way things have panned out.

"I love making movies and I love it as much as the theatre now, more probably because there's something really special about the collaboration in a film".
