Former EastEnders star Sarah Womack plays Narnia's evil White Witch in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe at The Alexandra , Birmingham, from March 8 to 12, 2022.

The smash-hit Leeds Playhouse production of C.S. Lewis' classic novel is touring the UK and Sarah is delighted to be on stage again."Having been a huge fan of C.S. Lewis' The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe for as long as I can remember, I am thrilled to be playing the White Witch. The book has always been a magical read and, having watched incredible actors interpret this role in the past, I am excited to see what she holds for me. This production is so beautifully conceived with thrilling sets and costumes and an amazingly talented cast and creative team. I can't wait to seduce, plot and terrify Narnia into a permanent winter."

Samantha, who was Ronnie Mitchell in EastEnders, has starred in many hit theatre shows, including The Girl on the Train, South Pacific, Guys and Dolls and Harold Pinter's Betrayal.

Her varied work on television has seen her move from comedy to drama, with the cult success of BBC's Game On and Babes in the Wood to ITV's gritty crime drama Liverpool 1 and Imogen's Face. Films include playing the unhinged mother of Eggsy in The Kingsman franchise – sharing the screen with Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson – and playing Hazel in Jon Godbers Up 'n' Under.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe tells the story of four children who wave goodbye to wartime Britain and embark on a magical adventure in a frozen, faraway land where they meet a faun, talking beavers, Aslan (the noble king of Narnia) and the evil White Witch.

Joining Samantha in the cast at The Alexandra are two actors from Birmingham – Sam Buttery as Mr Beaver and Grace Wylde as Mrs Pevensie, Robin and Gryphon.

At the age of 16, Sam appeared in a youth summer show Stage Experience at the Alexandra Theatre. Subsequent theatre credits include Jesus Christ Superstar at the Barbican, Buttery Brown Monk at Leicester Square Theatre and Taboo at Brixton Clubhouse. TV credits include The Tale of Mr Tumble for CBeebies and 8 Out of 10 Cats for Channel 4.

Grace Wylde appeared in The Boy in the Dress for the RSC and has been a featured dancer on TV in The BRIT Awards and X Factor Final Live.
