Heather Mills is in talks to play Mary Poppins in the hit musical, it has been reported.
She has had "Dancing With The Stars" in her list. And now Heather Mills is adding one more into her hectic schedules, playing in hit musical.
Rumor has it that Mills has met with theater producer Cameron Mackintosh to discuss the possibility to play Mary Poppins in the hit musical. In order to be able to play the role, Mills will need to perfect her singing and dancing skills.
"Heather is very, very ambitious. She has no shortage of self-belief and thinks she can tackle the part, even though she has never really had any singing experience. Cameron obviously believes Heather has what it takes," a source told Britain's Daily Star newspaper.
"Mary Poppins" is a 1964 American musical film produced by Walt Disney Productions, based on the Mary Poppins series of children's books written by P. L. Travers and illustrated by Mary Shepard. The role of Mary Poppins was first made famous by Julie Andrews. If Heather does win the role, she will be performing at New York's Majestic New Amsterdam Theatre.
