Pop Princess Kylie will renew her focus on acting in "quirky" drama written and directed by Marc Warren
Kylie Minogue leads a long list of stars who will appear in the new series of Playhouse Presents, a strand of one-off dramas that returns to Sky Arts 1 in April.
Minogue will play the lead in Hey Diddly Dee, a dark comedy drama written and directed by Hustle and Mad Dogs star Marc Warren about the death of a theatre actor. "When the script was sent to me, I read it and knew instinctively I wanted to be part of this project,” Minogue said. “Marc has created a beautiful and quirky story."
Co-starring with Minogue are Homeland's David Harewood, former Gavin & Stacey star Mathew Horne, and Paul Kaye – as well as Peter Serafinowicz, pictured below in character as Roger, an actor taking the role of Andy Warhol. Minogue is Bibi, an actress playing one of Warhol's muses, Edie Sedgwick.
This will be only her second acting role in a British TV show, following her appearance opposite David Tennant in the 2007 Doctor Who Christmas special, Voyage of the Damned.
