Nathan Darrow, an actor from Overland Park, Kan., has rocketed to stardom in his role as Edward Meechum on the Netflix show House of Cards. Darrow got his big break when he completed a world tour with a Sam Mendes production of Richard III, also starring Kevin Spacey. (A one-time screening of a documentary about that world tour will take place at the Tivoli April 29 at 7:30 p.m. The documentary NOW: In the Wings on a World Stage will be available online in May).

On Tuesday's Central Standard, host Gina Kaufmann talks with Darrow about his career.
