Tonight was a very special one for actor Ian McDiarmid (Palpy himself) he won a Tony Award (outstanding performances in Broadway plays). The award was for Best Featured Actor in a Play for his role as Teddy in Faith Healer.
Here's the pic of him accepting his Tony.
After his speech he let out a "Fantastic!!" hehe
He played opposite Ralph Fiennes (Frank Hardy, the Faith Healer) and Cherry Jones in the much talked about play about a faith healer whose powers were only intermittent, McDiarmid played Teddy, Frank Hardy's manager.
Here's a little excerpt from the play (his performance in it) and a slide show from The New York Times. Click "Skip this ad"
