Roxanne Pallett, probably still best-known for her long-running character of Jo in ITV’s Emmerdale, is currently appearing as Tyler in Neil LaBute’s Some Girls at London’s Park Theatre and in 2017 will star as Holly in a new production of The Wedding Singer, a musical based on the popular 1998 film of the same name, for a national tour.

Roxanne talks to BTG editor David Chadderton about both productions in a busy year for her, and also speaks quite frankly about how tough it can be for an actor to handle the leaner times when the work isn't coming in.

Some Girls by Neil LaBute runs at Park Theatre in London from 14 July to 6 August 2016.

The Wedding Singer will open at Curve in Leicester on 9 February 2017 and will tour the UK until September 2017.
