Hannah’s character Poppy in The Armour is a pop diva attempting a comeback. Sounds like fun! See what else she has to say below:
Former S Club 7 star Hannah Spearritt has said she leapt at the chance to play a diva having a “stereotypical celebrity meltdown” in a new play celebrating the 150th anniversary of one of Europe’s grand hotels.
Spearritt, 33, who has starred in TV’s Primeval and a tour of One Man, Two Guvnors since the pop group disbanded, plays a pop star making a comeback in The Armour by Ben Ellis which will premiere in London next month.
She admitted she could relate to the character. “She’s full of attitude, a tad off the wall, has a Twitter follower-fuelled ego but is quite vulnerable beneath the diva façade.”
And the additional attraction of the play was the unusual venue. “When it dawned on me that I’d be acting in a five-star hotel room, I thought, Ooh,’ ello, this is new.”
The Armour, produced by Defibrillator theatre company, is at the Langham Hotel, Portland Place, from March 3 to April 4. www.defibrillatortheatre.com
