Charlotte Kate Fox, 29, who stars as Ellie in the popular NHK drama "Massan," has landed the role of lead character Roxie Hart in the Broadway musical "Chicago."
Her work in "Massan," in which she smoothly adapted into a different cultural setting in Japan, apparently caught the eye of a theater producer in New York, Sports Nippon reported Friday.
"Ellie has become big part of my life and I love her. But you know, as an actor, you can't sort of stay with one character forever. I'm excited for you to come on this new journey with me," Fox said.
"Chicago" will run from Oct 26 to Nov 8 at the Ambassador Theater in New York.© Japan Today
