The 29-year -old said "I am very excited and also terrified...I haven't done theatre since high school so I have a lot to learn, but it's always been a dream to go to London and do theatre." She added, "I am nervous about the orgasm scene because it's not every day you do that in front of 800 people."

Luke Perry, making his London stage debut as Harry, is the internationally known star of television's Beverly Hills 90210. Perry is currently shooting the new sci-fi television series, Jeremiah for Showtime, based on the popular comic book series of the same title. He recently completed shooting 10 episodes for HBO's series, OZ, in which he portrayed a new member of the prison population. Perry has also just finished two new films, The Enemy, a spy thriller opposite Roger Moore, and Fogbound, a pyscho-sexual thriller.

When Harry Met Sally is one of the best-loved romantic comedies of all time that poses one of life's most interesting questions -- Will sex ruin a perfect friendship between a man and a woman? Directed in 1989 by Rob Reiner, the film starred Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal.
