In this, our first bonus interview podcast, we give you the whole interview with Alexia Khadime. She speaks about all sort of interesting things, from her early career to institutional racism that can sometimes be in the theatre.

Khadime's most high profile role was as the lead "Elphaba" in the London production of Wicked. She permanently took over the role from Kerry Ellis on 11 May 2009, having previous filled in from June to November 2008 whilst Ellis played the role on Broadway. Khadime was the first black woman to be cast in the role full time. As being the first black woman to play the role, a special green make-up had to be made by mixing three different shades of green by MAC cosmetics.

Last week, I was lucky enough to interview my favourite ever Elphaba, Alexia Khadime. She is currently in a new show called Ordinary Days, which the interview is about. We also interview Alexia's co-star, Julie Atherton and Ordinary Days writer/composer and all round musical genius Adam Gwon.

And for all you Alexia fans, keep an eye on Stage Left or stageleft_uk as, fingers crossed, we will be releasing Alexia's full interview, where she talks about Wicked and other moving topics.

As you all know, Kerry Ellis is returning to the West End as Elphaba from December 1st, which means Alexia has finished her run as Elphaba.

So lets take a moment to reflect on the past 6 months and the amazing job that Alexia has done.

I saw two of her performances in June/July while I was in London and just fell in love with the musical and her performance.

Feel free to share your stories. I know we are all here in this community for a reason.
