Roxanne Pallett is still best known for playing Jo Sugden in the TV show 'Emmerdale', but she's taken a turn to comedy for her recent stage roles. She's currently starring in a new play called 'Ladies Day' at the Royal court, where her character is basically obsessed with becoming famous.
She talks about her character, Shelley, saying that she, "wants to be famous. She’s your typical girl who will run out and buy Heat magazine and believe everything in it. She thinks fame is the answer to every problem, and she really does buy into the glitz and the glamour and the illusion.”
Pallett also opens up about her 'method acting', which basically means that she's been turning up for rehearsal in tracksuits and rollers, as well as 'channeling her inner WAG'. She also talks about the difference in these storylines versus her three years playing a dramatic role on 'Emmerdale. She explains, "With Jo it was a really intense storyline with the domestic violence,” Roxanne says. So it’s been lovely to step out of crying every day. And for people to see a comedic side of me, because in real life I’m quite hyper and bubbly.”
In addition to her stage roles, Roxanne also has two films coming out this year called 'Devil's Tower' and 'It's a Lot'.
