Lindsay Lohan - Lindsay Lohan Determined To Restore Reputation With West End Debut

Subscribe To:

Lindsay Lohan is determined to prove she is a changed woman by vowing not to miss a single rehearsal or show as she prepares to make her West End debut in a new production of David Mamet's Speed-The-Plow.

The former child star has developed a reputation for tardiness in recent years after struggling with a variety of personal problems, culminating in a court-ordered 90-day rehab stint last summer (13).

She has been working to rebuild her flailing acting career ever since, and reveals she is banking on her new job as Karen, her first ever stage role, to show industry executives her true worth.

Lohan insists she will not be hitting headlines for skipping shows once rehearsals begin in the coming weeks, telling the Bbc, "That's not going to happen. That's not on the cards. It's not. I'm at a place in my life where I like the commitment. I'm looking forward to that part of it.

"I want to be known for my talents and my work that I create, rather than a tabloid sensation. However long it does take, I'm willing to do it. I'm willing to work for it."

She confesses she feels "very lucky and excited and nervous" to make her debut in London's theatre district and adds, "There's a different standard to it here. It seems more prestigious. It seems a bit more serious and that's something that I really want to experience."

The Mean Girls star has been spending an increasing amount of time in the British capital in recent months and she admits she is considering moving to London "for good", because celebrities don't dominate the national news and Tv scheduling.

She explains, "I've noticed here, watching the news, you guys have such a different outlook. In the U.S. starting at 5pm it's Tmz (gossip show), it's all these shows talking about people's personal lives and here I don't notice any of that - it's news and politics and music.

"So it's nice to be able to turn on the Tv and not everything is about gossip. That's a really nice feeling."

The revival of satirical play Speed-the-Plow is due to run for 10 weeks at the Playhouse Theatre from 24 September (14).
