Dormer said: “It’s an absolute honour to have been asked by J.Sheekey to take part in the Future Icons project.

“I’ve been going there for years and it will be a real moment to see my portrait amongst the others on the walls of such an institution.”

Floyd, who has previously photographed stars such as David Bowie, Richard E. Grant and Gillian Anderson added: “I’m a huge fan of J.Sheekey and have always loved the pictures that hang on its walls, so when the opportunity to collaborate together on the Future Icons exhibition presented itself, it was an easy decision to make.

“The collection of 16 portraits have been inspired by the people in them.

“Each has been shot at a different location and has its own distinct feel, but they work together to tell the cohesive story of how the UK continues to produce phenomenal talent, all of whom deserve to sit alongside the great names we know so well, on the walls of J.Sheekey.”

The images, which were taken around London, including at the Donmar Warehouse and Wyndham’s theatre, will go on display at J. Sheekey’s Atlantic Bar this month.
