Sarah Hard­ing is fully ‘com­mit­ted’ to per­form­ing in ‘Ghost the Mu­si­cal’

Kuwait Times - - WEEKENDER -

The for­mer Girls Aloud star was forced to with­draw from her lead role as Molly half­way through the show at Black­pool’s Win­ter Gar­dens on Mon­day night (10.10.16) but was able to re­turn to the stage on Tues­day evening (11.10.16) to re­sume du­ties. Sarah has now re­vealed she is liv­ing with “chronic pain” from rup­tur­ing a lig­a­ment in her knee in Fe­bru­ary while com­pet­ing on the dan­ger­ous win­ter sports show but de­spite her in­jury she has no in­ten­tion of quit­ting ‘Ghost’ - which is her first the­atre role. In a state­ment is­sued by Sarah, 34, to BANG Show­biz, she said: “I would like to go on the record and say since ap­pear­ing in ‘The Jump’, I have been in con­stant pain with my knee in­jury, and as any­one in chronic pain will be able to tell you, it can take a mas­sive toll on your men­tal as well as phys­i­cal well­be­ing. There is of course a pres­sure I feel to per­form daily and I try to give the role of Molly in ‘Ghost The Mu­si­cal’ my all. How­ever, I have to say the re­lent­less scru­tiny, the trolling and the sen­sa­tion­alised and of­ten fab­ri­cated sto­ries do not make this any eas­ier. “This op­por­tu­nity felt like a dream come true and de­spite it now feel­ing like there is a per­sonal agenda to make me quit, I’m com­mit­ted to the pro­duc­tion, cast, crew and amaz­ing au­di­ences round the UK who have been noth­ing but kind and sup­port­ive. I have the joy of work­ing with some in­cred­i­bly tal­ented in­di­vid­u­als, and I still highly rec­om­mend peo­ple come and see the show to judge for them­selves.” Sarah stars op­po­site for­mer ‘Hol­lyoaks’ ac­tor Andy Moss - who plays Molly’s late lover Sam - in ‘Ghost The Mu­si­cal’ which is based on the pop­u­lar 1990 movie which fea­tured Pa­trick Swayze and Demi Moore in the lead roles. The show moves on next to the Palace The­atre Manch­ester where it will run from Tues­day Oc­to­ber 25 to Satur­day Oc­to­ber 29.
