Oz Rebel heads for West End
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.”
