Andrew Lloyd Webber warns Cinderella cast that 'nobody has right to be on stage'

  Andrew Lloyd Webber warns Cinderella cast that 'nobody has right to be on stage' Musical theatre icon Andrew Lloyd Webber warns his 'Cinderella' cast that "nobody has a right to be on stage".The 73-year-old musical theatre icon has denied claimed he berated his young cast members over poor reviews for his latest musical, but he urged them to realise they work in the "service industry".

Meanwhile, Mark previously confessed that he was terrified of beating up George Clooney when they starred together in the 2005 film 'Syriana' – as he was required to unleash violence in a scene so brutal that the Hollywood star ended up injuring his back.

The 'Cruella' star said: "There was a great responsibility attached to it and he actually did his back in when he chose to fall into shot still tied to the chair.

"I met him years later, thinking I'd been responsible, but he absolved me."

Mark credits his roles in 'Syriana' and Roman Polanski's adaptation of 'Oliver Twist' for defining his film career – to the extent that his performances caught the attention of acclaimed directors the Coen brothers.

He said: "In one year in film I was in Polanski's 'Oliver Twist' and played a Muslim terrorist in 'Syriana', where I ended up beating up George Clooney.

"I got a call from the Coen brothers to meet them because they couldn't believe it was the same actor playing both parts."
