Lucy St. Louis recently chatted with ITV News about starring in The Phantom of the Opera in the West End, in the role of Christine Daae.

She talked about the importance of playing this role, as a Black woman.

"I never saw women in lead roles that look like me, and I was always kind of told that you're going to be playing certain roles," she said. "And they were roles that were made for Black performers. I want everybody to know that they can be in this position because when you see it you believe it."

St. Louis went on to express her gratitude and excitement for where he career has brought her.

"If my younger self could see this now, she would be screaming inside with pure joy and happiness," she said.
