Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

BUSTY Aus­tralian ac­tress Rebel Wil­son is head­ing to the West End to join the cast of Guys and Dolls.

The Pitch Per­fect star will play the part of Miss Ade­laide for an eight-week run at Lon­don’s Phoenix Theatre.

She re­vealed: “A lot of peo­ple who know me from my more re­cent film work have no idea how much theatre has in­flu­enced my life.

“I saw my first mu­si­cal, 42nd Street, at age 14. It blew me away and I’ve loved mu­si­cal theatre ever since.”

The 36-year-old, from Syd­ney, starred in a num­ber of pro­duc­tions while train­ing at the Aus­tralian Theatre for Young Peo­ple.

She added: “I went on to write and per­form in my own pro­duc­tions be­fore be­ing snapped up to do screen work.

“I am de­lighted to be mak­ing my West End de­but in Guys and Dolls, and to be play­ing such an iconic role as Miss Ade­laide is truly an hon­our.

“Hope­fully, I crush it... but you’ll have to come and find out.”
