She revealed that they were inspired by Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West’s relationship for their roles in MacBeth.

‘We keep thinking about Macbeth and Lady Macbeth as like a Kim and Kanye situation, where there have been stages to their success and real kind of highs and lows.’

She also sees them as a ‘couple that is professional but also has tenderness,’ and said that ‘there is so much of their private life that we don’t know.’

Ronan said of her and McArdle’s storyline: ‘The tragedy is that these two people who are soul mates and peers and very much partners in every way… when that starts to come apart, what we would hope is that, when people come to see it, that is when the sadness seeps in.’

The Tragedy of Macbeth will open on 1st October at Almeida theatre, Islington.
