A North Carolina teenager has been cast as theatre impresario Cameron Mackintosh's latest leading lady on the West End stage.
Eva Noblezada, 17, will portray Kim in the upcoming London stage revival of Miss Saigon after she was discovered by a casting director in New York City.
MACkintosh tells Britain's Daily Mail, "She's performed in shows at her school, but she has never done a big professional musical before... Eva's going to be our new Lea."
The theatre boss gave Lea Salonga her big break 25 years ago when he cast her in the original production of Miss Saigon.
Noblezada isn't the first person in her family to play Kim onstage - her aunt, Annette Calud, appeared in the Broadway production.
The Miss Saigon revival begins in May (14) and will also feature Jon Briones, Alistair Brammer and Tamsin Carroll.
