> Macbeth review: James McAvoy is bold, brutish and brilliant

A witness told The Telegraph that the audience member "looked very embarrassed" after McAvoy shouted at him to stop filming.

A statement from Trafalgar Studios, where the performance took place, said: "An audience member was caught filming by the actor James McAvoy.

"The filming disrupted the production of Macbeth, forcing James McAvoy to respond to the audience member by asking them to stop filming immediately.

"The production then continued as planned once the camera was put away."

McAvoy interrupted the show earlier this month to help an audience member who had collapsed.
