Desdemona

And, in further casting news, Natalie Tena will apparently be playing Desdemona to Patrice Naiambana's Othello in the RSC's spring production. Tena's probably best known for playing Tonks in the last Harry Potter film, but she also turned up in Kneehigh's Nights at the Circus. Very interesting casting, certainly not playing to type (as the picture below partly demonstrates), so could be a fun collaboration!
