WINS BOADICEA ROLE
Rock singer and actress Toyah Willcox is to play
Queen Boadicea in a new film.
It will be the flame-haired former punk's fourth
film role and she said yesterday: 'It is the most exciting thing I have
ever been involved in.
'She's a character I greatly admire and it is
a wonderful role for woman to play!'
Boadicea, a first century ruler, killed herself
after leading her people against the Romans in eastern England.
'She was a larger than life character who will
remain well known throughout the ages,' said Toyah, 24 - who has appeared
in Jubilee, The Tempest and Murder - Ultimate Grounds For Divorce.
