That's great news. I'm glad to see Ash get an opportunity like this. I could never really see her as Nancy, but she's a talented girl who had an unnecessarily harsh time on the show.

Ashley J Russell's next role is now public - and she's started playing it........

Ashley is in the Mamma Mia International Tour. She's according to her agent's site, understudying Tanya, Rosie and Donna , 3 of the 4 female leads
http://www.mamma-mia.com/internation...lTour_cast.asp

The tour looks quite amazing - if Ashley likes Korean food, and Korean winter, and can get used to the air raid drills. It starts snd runs from November 26 to March 23 in Seoul, South Korea, then moves to Basel Switzerland to run from 13 May to 8 June and then moves for the summer to Blackpool from 20 June - 31 Aug . Kimchi, Korean dancers, alps, and beaches......
