Check out the amazing promotional shot of 29-year-old Kimberly Walsh as Princess Fiona. Walsh will take on the role from October 5th after Holden made the decision not to be doing anything to jeopardise her pregnancy after a tragic miscarriage last year.
She wrote on her website, “My first priority is of course my family.I will therefore be adjusting one of my professional commitments accordingly.Due to its physical content this means I will end my contract with Shrek The Musical eight weeks early. I will endeavour to continue the show until October. I do however ask you to bear with me as I will be putting myself and this pregnancy first.”
The musical, Shrek, follows the lines of the first DreamWorks movie where ogre Shrek (Nigel Lindsay) is forced to face the world and leave the confinements of his swamp when the evil Lord Farquaad (Nigel Harman) exiles what he deems ‘freak’ fairy tale characters from his city and sends them to live in Shrek’s swamp.
