'Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark' promotes cast member
More changes are afoot at Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark: Actress T.V. Carpio will officially assume the role of Arachne, a spider villainess, the show’s producers announced today. Natalie Mendoza originated the role but was injured during a performance and left the show at the end of December. Carpio, whose previous credits include director Julie Taymor’s Across the Universe, starts her official run tonight but has already covered the role several times.
“I don’t have any fear in terms of safety,” Carpio said today on Good Morning America. “I have a great want to step into some big shoes and do the best I can do to service this piece.”
