How stagey are you? Carley Stenson vs Noel Sullivan
Our search for the king or queen of staginess continues with this pair of scoundrels
Carley found fame playing Steph Cunningham in the Channel 4 series Hollyoaks.
Her theatre credits include Shrek, Legally Blonde and Spamalot.
Carley is currently playing Christine Colgate in the UK tour of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
I went to see Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown two weeks ago. I went with Carley! 1
I do have quite a lot! Just from auditions, you have to download the album so you can get a feel of the songs they want you to sing. Obviously I've got Les Mis on there. And I do have a lot of Glee on there. 1
My friend Robbie came to visit me in Shrek and put on my tiara and dress. That's quite stagey! 1
Jerry Mitchell! 1
Scarlett, Summer, Zizi…. Can I count Bonnie Langford?.... Ooh! Sasi. 1
Can I just say the whole of Much Ado About Nothing? I love that one. 0 [No, no you can't]
Not really, because I've had OCD really badly and I had to drum it out of myself. Break a leg and don't whistle and all that stuff. 0
I'm going to go for Liza Minelli. It would just be interesting to watch her eat. 1
I've got a funny story. It wasn't me, it happened to my boyfriend (Danny Mac). When he was in Wicked they had these massive egg heads, you had to step into the costume and zip it round the waist. He had to run on stage with this pole he was holding to keep the head up. As he ran on stage and jumped and landed with his back to the audience, the bottom half fell down and he only had little gold hotpants on, he had to run off stage effectively with his pants down! 0 [It's funny but it's not a joke]
I got a part in a WNO production of Debussy's Pelléas et Mélisande when I was 12, we performed at the Hippodrome in Birmingham and then over at the Paris Châtelet. That was pretty stagey! 1 [Oui, Oui]
Carley gets off to a good start with some impressive showtunes banter but is let down by her Shakespearean knowledge and OCD. 7 points puts her level with Louise Dearman in the Stagey League Table.
Coming up next week: Drew McOnie vs Charlotte Wakefield
