Kimberley Walsh Would Love To Play Glinda In WICKED


Let us rejoicify! Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh has revealed she would love to play Glinda the Good Witch in musical Wicked. Walsh expressed her ambition to presenter William J Connolly on the fourth episode of podcast eleven, which is out today:

On her Wicked dreams - and her desire to go for Glinda rather than Elphaba - Walsh said: "Somebody was chatting about Wicked the other day and I thought I'd actually like to do the other witch more... Glinda. She's so funny, but then you can have a life. You don't have to go home and go to bed straightaway every night and have literally no life. Drink no coffee, no wine - it's terrible. I think that is a really big sing to the point where it's life-changing for your family and everything. That's a lot!

"But Glinda is hilarious and I could sing that quite easily... and a bubble, she gets to dress up. You probably would be a bit envious of Elphaba, but when you could have a glass of wine once in a while... maybe I'm not that jealous, actually."

BRIT Award-winner and West End leading lady Kimberley Walsh is the latest star to feature on the new weekly podcast, which is recorded exclusively backstage at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre where she is in rehearsals for the premiere of musical Sleepless, based on the film Sleepless in Seattle.
