There's No Smoke Without Fire
I was just browsing the usual websites for any news on Rachel and came across this interesting article at 'UnrealityTV.co.uk'.
It seems that Cameron Mackintosh was so worried about Jodie Prengers acting skills that he has enrolled her for a crash acting course at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA).
Jodie won BBC talent search, I’d Do Anything in May, but rumours persisted that Mackintosh would rather have had Rachel Tucker for the role.
Jodie admitted to The Sun: “Singing live on Saturday night TV in front of millions of people was not nearly as scary as tackling Shakespeare at RADA.”
Last night, a source said: “Jodie is not a fully-trained actress and Cameron just wanted to make sure she’s up to scratch by the time rehearsals start in October.”
Personally I think it was pretty clear that Cameron would have liked Rachel to play Nancy. You can't blame him for wanting the best person for the role and I think everyone here would agree that person was Rachel.
Don't get me wrong, I think Jodie will do absolutely fine and I wish her every success. However I believe that Rachel would have been the best Nancy ever and I expect that Cameron will be praying that she might still want to take on the role sometime in the future.
