Anna Friel is stepping into Audrey Hepburn's shoes to star in a West End stage adaption of Breakfast At Tiffany's.

The 32 year old will appear as Hepburn's character Holly Golightly in London's West End later this year (Sep09) - and the Pushing Daisies actress is determined to put her own stamp on the role.

She says, "I'm delighted to have been given the chance to play one of my all-time favorite heroines.
Holly's a heroine for a lot of females because she doesn't follow the rules. My Holly will have a lot more rough edges than Audrey's."

The original movie was released back in 1961 and remains Audrey Hepburn's most famous role for which she was OScar nominated for Best Actress.

But the stage version of the movie is not the only Hepburn worj to be getting a makeover as Mu Fair Lady is getting a big screen remake.

Emma Thompson has penned the script, she won Best Adapted Screenplay for her version of Sense and Sensibility, and Keira Knightley is linked to the role of Eliza Doolittle.
