The model/actress joins a cast including Mathew Horne and Mackenzie Crook in creating a series of six short plays in a 24-hour period.
The event, ongoing since 2004, unites actors, writers and directors in the name of fundraising for The Old Vic Theatre Trust. Participants will convene for the first time at 10:00 PM this Saturday night, bringing with them an object that may be used as a prop or volunteering a piece of information that may serve as a plot detail. The writing team will work overnight to create 10-minute plays ahead of a full day of rehearsals that culminates in the one-off performance.
Ive just seen the final list of people taking part and it really will be an honour to stand side by side with some of the most reputable people in theatre, Cole told us. I recently saw Kevin Spacey's extraordinary performance of Richard III at the Old Vic and can't believe I'll be on that same stage! I dont really know what to expect but am excited for the challenge that awaits.
Cole, who recently completed her degree at Cambridge University, acted in student plays during her time at university. She has also appeared in films, including Terry Gilliams The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and the forthcoming Snow White and the Huntsman, which stars Kristen Stewart.More
