Emma Stone 'obsessed' with Broadway role
EMMA Stone is "obsessed" with her role on Broadway.
The 26-year-old actress recently took over from Michelle Williams as Sally Bowles in 'Cabaret' and admits she has wanted to play the part since she was a child.
She said: "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."
Emma's co-star Alan Cumming also thinks Emma's role is very special because her alter-ego is so "vulnerable" but also "funny".
He told Vanity Fair magazine: "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."
Emma previously admitted she was terrified of taking on the role.
The 'Birdman' star said: "I'm scared s***less! But I've wanted to play that part since I was, strangely, nine years old, which is way too young."
