As Emma Stone gets ready to step down as Sally Bowles in Cabaret, she left her successor, Sienna Miller, a pretty unusual but thoughtful gift.
On Thursday, Cambio reported on behalf of Vanity Fair that Stone is preparing to leave her hit role in Cabaret, but not without a sweet surprise for Miller who will be playing the character, Sally Bowles.
The actress reportedly left her successor some throat spray. Cabaret is a musical on Broadway and with how much time Stone spent singing for the role, she knows better than anyone how badly Miller will need the gift.
Apparently, Stone has also been giving Miller some advice as she works her way into the role.
"Emma was on hand and has remained on hand and has been completely open and brilliant and just is such an amazing person," Miller told the publication.
But what has Stone has been telling her?
"She warned me of the challenges and pitfalls that she felt," Miller said. "Talked me through stamina and gave me vitamin infusion numbers. And left me throat spray and stuff and all of the things that got her through the show. It was really sweet."
Miller also opened up about what made her want to play the starring role of Sally Bowles in Cabaret.
"I think, more than anything, I was desperate to get back into the theater. I hadn't actually ever seen a production [of Cabaret] when I signed on to do it, but obviously had heard amazing things about it, and amazing things about the people involved, and Alan [Cumming] obviously is completely iconic in that part," Miller said.
And when Miller saw a six-week opening for the role, she knew it was meant to be.
"It turned out there would be six weeks that hadn't been filled [for Sally]," Miller said. "It just felt like a great opportunity to come and sing and dance on Broadway and not have to be a trained singer and dancer. [Sally's] just a pretty incredible character to get to dive into. There was absolutely no reason to not do it, basically."
