"I'd Do Anything" Contestant Rachel Tucker Lands Role in West End Musical

News   "I'd Do Anything" Contestant Rachel Tucker Lands Role in West End Musical Rachel Tucker, who placed fourth in the "I'D Do Anything" BBC reality contest to find a leading lady to play Nancy in the forthcoming production of Oliver!, has landed her first West End role.

Tucker will take over as the sassy rebel Meat in Queen and Ben Elton's long-running We Will Rock You at the Dominion Theatre beginning Sept. 22. In a press statement, the Belfast-born singer said, "It is a dream part. We Will Rock You is one of my favorite shows. I first saw it when I was a student at the Royal Academy and loved it. I am beside myself with excitement. I just can't believe it."

Tucker will join a company that continues to feature Ricardo Afonso as Galileo and Sabrina Aloueche as Scaramouche, and will be newly joined by Ian Carlyle (Porgy and Bess, Miss Saigon) as Meat's tough-guy partner Britney and Garry Lake (who is currently in the ensemble of We Will Rock You), who takes over as fixed-in-time hippy Pop.
