Interview: The Magical Leading Ladies Of WICKED, Carly Anderson and Jacqueline Hughes
It is wonderful! I didn’t ever see her as a “baddie” (while it is cool to think of it that way). There is so much that I get out of the character, and so much more I discover about her as I play through different shows. When she does eventually become a “baddie”, it is one of my favourite points in the show. That is when I sing the song “No Good Deed”. It happens halfway through Act II, acting as her turning point where she succumbs to her “wickedness” (so as to speak). She says, “Okay, you know, you’ve all called me wicked, so here I am!” It is her peak. It is dark, thrilling and the music is exciting.
