Aaron Taylor Johnson and his wife Sam enjoyed a night out to see Jodie Comer’s performance at London’s Harold Pinter Theater on Wednesday.
The actor, 32, and his filmmaker wife, 55, sported trendy displays as they headed out to watch the one-woman show Prima Facie, which hits Broadway next year.
Aaron cut a casual figure in black jeans and a partially unbuttoned striped shirt that showed off his toned figure.

He completed his stylish ensemble with a cream blazer and lounged in a pair of white trainers as he hit the capital.
The kick-ass star accessorized his attire with a row of silver rings and a draped chain necklace, while styling his brunette tresses in natural waves.
His wife Sam, whom he married in 2012, looked effortlessly chic in blue flared jeans and a striped shirt and seemed to be coordinating her look with Aaron.
She completed her sensational outfit with a pair of chunky brown leather sandals and kept her essentials in a brown handbag, which she carried over one shoulder.

The A Million Little Pieces director styled her golden tresses straight, cascading down her shoulders and framed her face with round glasses.
She accessorised her ensemble with a dainty pendant necklace, gold earrings and a watch, while holding a face mask in one hand.
Aaron and Sam, who have a 23-year age difference, met in 2009 on the set of the John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy, which Sam directed when she was 42 and he was 18.
The English couple announced their engagement later that year and married in 2012 with a ceremony in Somerset, England.

At the time of their first collaboration, Aaron went by the surname Johnson while Sam’s name was Taylor-Wood, but both took the married name Taylor-Johnson.
The lovebirds returned to the collaboration in 2018 with their adaptation of James Frey’s pseudo-memoir A Million Little Pieces.
The pair wrote the film together, making it Aaron’s first screenwriting stint.
He starred in the film as Frey, who is admitted to a rehab center after a bad fall while under the influence of drugs.

And they seemed as smitten as ever as they enjoyed a date night to see Jodie’s Prima Facie play on Wednesday.
The production, which will go to Broadway next year, had a slew of celebrity guests watching the production, including Anne Robinson, Jeremy Irons and Fiona Shaw.
The one-woman show sees Jodie Star as the idealistic young lawyer Tessa who specializes in defending rape suspects.
Dubbed “Thoroughbred,” her character vilifies victims until she is sexually assaulted and forced to go against the system she has exploited throughout her career.
Directed by Justin Martin, Prima Facie was written by Australian-British lawyer Suzie Miller and was Jodie’s West End debut.

The Daily Mail’s Patrick Marmion gave Jodie’s “wild but forensic performance” a strong four stars out of five.
He wrote: “Comer blows us away in a wild but forensic performance told from rapidly shifting perspectives in a snowstorm.
“She gets us on our side as a high-flying barrister with her native Liverpool accent and anti-establishment attitude – at one point, she throws rubbish at the audience.
“But her sudden collapse into feverish, ashen confusion is seriously disturbing.
“Although her performance spans a breathtaking range from exhilaration to despair and humiliation, it is the theme that dominates the evening.”

James confirmed he would like another limited season for Prima Facie in London, where it was played to a full audience during an 11-day preview run.
He added that the play “feels like it could be a really powerful agent” when it comes to how victims of sexual assault are treated by the police and the courts.
“Every eight minutes in the UK a woman reports a rape,” he said, before pointing out that only a fraction of those cases end up in court.
After Jodie was cast as Tessa, it was decided to give the character a working-class Liverpudlian voice.
Prima Facie – What’s the verdict?
Arifa Akbar writes: “Jodie Comer’s West End stage debut is a baptism of fire in every way. A one-woman play about a lawyer who specializes in defending men accused of sexual assault until she is assaulted herself, and demands frantic, non-stop physical and emotional commitment from her lead role.”
Dominic Cavendish writes: “West End debuts come as little more of a surprise than this solo tour de force from Jodie Comer.
“Her performance, which runs a full 100 minutes, propels her to the front row of stage stars.
“It has to be said that the 29-year-old Liverpudlian seemed incapable of making mistakes at career moves.”
Baz Bamigboye writes: “What a truly stunning debut. Comer is phenomenal and commands the stage.
“Comer, 29, gives a fearless, flawless performance as Tessa, a criminal attorney who specializes in defending rapists.”
Andrzej Lukowski writes, “Jodie Comer gives a masterly performance in this slightly clunky sexual assault monologue.”
