AN actor and dancer has landed a role as the understudy to Priscilla Presley in a London panto.
Jessica Hardy, 19, of Piercing Hill in Theydon Bois, is dancing in the New Wimbledon Theatre’s production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and is hoping for the chance to play The Wicked Queen if the Dallas actor is unable to make a performance.
The former Chigwell School pupil said: “It’s been going really well.
“I haven’t had any tips from Priscilla – she likes to get into the zone before her performance and keeps herself to herself – but she’s such a lovely person.
“I’m going to keep on auditioning in February and take it as it comes.”
The show runs until January 13.
