Are you a Heather? No? Well, we know three people that are because the actors joining Carrie Hope Fletcher have been announced.
Alongside the award-winning Carrie Hope (who will be playing Veronica Sawyer) and the band, are the most popular girls in school: Jodie Steele (Myth at The Other Palace, Wicked in the UK and International Tour) will play Heather Chandler, Sophie Isaacs (Kinky Boots at Adelphi Theatre, Made In Dagenham at Adelphi Theatre) will play Heather McNamara, and T’Shan Williams (Caroline or Change at Hampstead Theatre, The Color Purple: In Concert at Cadogan Hall) will play Heather Duke.
