In this, our first bonus interview podcast, we give you the whole interview with Alexia Khadime. She speaks about all sort of interesting things, from her early career to institutional racism that can sometimes be in the theatre.
Khadime's most high profile role was as the lead "Elphaba" in the London production of Wicked. She permanently took over the role from Kerry Ellis on 11 May 2009, having previous filled in from June to November 2008 whilst Ellis played the role on Broadway. Khadime was the first black woman to be cast in the role full time. As being the first black woman to play the role, a special green make-up had to be made by mixing three different shades of green by MAC cosmetics.
