Actress Emma Stone says, who has replaced Michelle Williams as Sally Bowles in play ‘Cabaret’ play, says she wanted to do the role since her childhood.
The 26-year-old actress said she cannot believe she is getting to do a role she has always been in love with, reported Contactmusic.
“I’ve wanted to play Sally Bowles since I was 10, and saw Natasha Richardson in ‘Cabaret’. I don’t think I’ve ever been so truly obsessed with a character or a story. I can’t believe it’s actually happening. Rob Marshall (co-director with Sam Mendes) said to me that Sally is like ‘Hamlet’ for women,” Stones aid.
Her co-star Alan Cumming also thinks Stone’s role is very special because her alter-ego is so vulnerable but also funny.
“It’s unusual for young actresses to get such completeness in a role. Sally is vulnerable, tragic, funny, unlikable, heartbreaking. And then she gets whacked across the face with an epiphany,” he said.
