So who's been cast as female Mephistopheles in Jamie Lloyd's Dr Faustus? I was almost right. Almost.
When Jamie Lloyd announced he was casting a woman as Mephistopheles opposite Kit Harington in Dr Faustus I came up with a wishlist:
Well today it was announced that Jenna Russell is to take the part. So not someone on my wish list but that doesn't mean I'm not excited to see Jenna - I've only seen her in one play - Mr Burns at the Almeida - as she tends to do musicals.
But someone on my wish list has made it on the cast list and that is Jade Anouka - yay! No news on which part she'll play but I'm taking credit for putting her name in the mind of Jamie Lloyd. Of course I did.
