Christina Ricci's Broadway Nerves

Christina Ricci is terrified about making her Broadway debut this evening (07.10.10).

The actress - who will take over the role of Mandy Bloom from Alicia Silverstone in Donald Margulies' 'Time Stands Still' -admitted she avoided taking part in a stage show for years because performing in front of a live audience scares her.

She said: "I always was really, really, really against doing anything in front of a live audience. I've always had stage fright. I don't like speaking in front of people. I don't like to present at awards shows - that to me was always the scariest thing ever. So the idea of doing a play for years was just like, 'Are you kidding?'"

However the actress - who will star alongside Laura Linney, Brian D'Arcy James and Eric Bogosian in the four-person play, which is being staged in New York's elite theatre district - is excited about the new challenge.

She explained: "It's an incredible experience. It's totally different than anything I've ever done. It's sort of fascinating the things that happen when you're out there. It's kind of like being on a really long first date - with somebody you really like."
