Linzi plays for Hugh Hefner's 80th

Linzi's luck

Her musical performance at Hugh Hefner's recent 80th birthday party in Cannes was said to be the icing on his birthday cake. But I hear that violinist Linzi Stoppard is making other creative inroads.

The daughter-in-law of playwright Tom Stoppard has secured her first role on the silver screen. "I met the director Stephen L'Heureux after I performed at Hugh's party and he offered me a cameo role in his next film," she tells me.

"I'm excited, as he's worked on some big films. He asked if I'd ever tried acting; I said no, but that I'd love to give it a go, and he offered me a part. It looks as if I'll be filmed playing the violin in a club scene."
