Lindsay Lohan has defended her West End debut after she was accused of forgetting her lines in her first show this week, insisting the performance “could have been a disaster… but it wasn’t”.
Lohan kicked off her first theatre run in a London production of David Mamet’s Speed-the-Plow on Wednesday night, but audience members claimed she stumbled through the first preview performance and struggled to remember her lines.
However, Lohan is adamant she is happy with her first night on stage, even though she struggled to contain her nerves.
She tells Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper, “It could’ve been a disaster, but it wasn’t by far… I could’ve not turned up. But of course I didn’t; it’s my show…
“Everyone is always going to be judgmental, no matter what. I respect people have an opinion, but I’m doing the best I can and will for the duration… I was nervous on the first night because I’d never done it before. But everyone (working on the show) has been really great… they’ve all been very kind, gracious and comforting.”
Speed-the-Plow officially opens at the Playhouse Theatre on October 2.
