Subject: James Corden 'thrilled beyond words' with Tony win

Written By: Philip Eno on 06/11/12 at 12:16 pm

British actor James Corden has said he is "thrilled beyond words" at being named best leading actor at the Tony Awards in New York.

Corden was honoured for his role in One Man, Two Guvnors, which transferred from the West End to Broadway earlier this year.

He beat the favourite, Philip Seymour Hoffman in Death of a Salesman.

The musical Once scooped eight Tonys, including best musical direction and best lead actor in a musical.

Corden fought back his emotions as he picked up his award, paying tribute to his girlfriend Julia, who gave birth to the couple's son five days before rehearsals for the show began.

He said he was "overwhelmed" at being nominated alongside such highly-regarded actors, saying: "To be on a list with you was enough and holding this, it honestly just reminds me that there is no such thing as best."

Backstage, he described his competition - Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Lithgow, Frank Langella and James Earl Jones - "as four of the finest actors alive".
