"Ugly Betty" star America Ferrera says she's "very excited" about her upcoming West End debut as the showgirl Roxie in "Chicago."
The American actress embarks on an eight-week stint at the Garrick Theatre beginning Nov. 7.
At a press conference Monday, the former TV star says performing on the London stage is something she's "dreamed" about since childhood. And the glamorous Roxie is a far cry from TV's Betty, which required Ferrera to wear dental braces and fake thick eyebrows.
The 27-year-old Ferrera joins a long list of U.S. celebrities _ including model Christie Brinkley _ who have played Roxie in London.
Starring opposite Ferrera will be actress and dancer Amra-Faye Wright, who plays fellow femme fatale Velma Kelly.
