Jessica Chastain has said that she is keen to swap Broadway for the West End after finishing work on The Heiress in New York last week.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Chastain said: "I would really like to work on the West End stage.

"It's a bit of a dream of mine, or to tread the boards at the National [Theatre]. That would be incredible."

Chastain is currently working on a film adaptation of August Strindberg's Miss Julie.
