Lenny Henry is known the world over for his comic routines and larger then life personality. But in recent years, he's decided to take on some rather different roles.
He is currently in the West Country starring in a new production at Bath's Theatre Royal. The play, called 'Fences' deals with issues surrounding life as a black family in 1950s Pennsylvania.
He plays Troy Maxon, a once gifted athlete, denied his chance at the big time by the policies of segregation.
