Andrew Castle’s daughter has been left with a “c**p” feeling after her dream of owning a home was abruptly extinguished after the musical Cinderella abruptly closed.
Georgina Castle, 29, played an evil step-sister in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s West End stage production and was originally booked to play the role until next May.
The daughter of former British tennis number one and BBC Wimbledon commentator has used the contract’s security to secure a mortgage to buy an apartment, which has already been prepared.
However, Lord Lloyd Webber announced on May 1 that the show would close less than a year after two delayed premieres.

The final performance at the Gillian Lynne Theater in Covent Garden on June 12 had a greater influence on Georgina.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, she said: “When we found out, it was a complete shock. I was booked until May 2023, and after Covid, that feels stable. I’m trying. Do your best to buy an apartment and have the mortgage all in place.
“But they [mortgage lender] found out that Cinderella was closed from the news. So they said: ‘We can’t continue.’ Then I feel c***, but you have to turn it around. I’m keeping my finger crossed that something else will appear. “
After the final performance, Lloyd Webber asked the audience to read a letter – he was not present – which led to a round of boos after calling the performance a “costly mistake”.
The letter read: “I kept thinking that if we had opened three months later, we wouldn’t have had to postpone the opening twice because of Covid.
“If only we didn’t have to close for a month over Christmas and New Year again thanks to Covid. And if only we had help from the recovery fund, I promise you we would have been here a long time. to come.
“A big thank you to everyone, we’ve kept the Government on the fire and led the march towards the reopening of the West End.
“It could have been an expensive mistake but I’m proud of what we did and will forever be grateful to those who have supported me. Cinderella has received some of the best reviews of my career and I’m so proud of that.”
Lloyd Webber took to Twitter on Monday to make another statement after being “devastated” by reports of the “costly misleading” comment.
He wrote: “I am deeply disappointed to be said to have been told that producing my beloved Cinderella was a ‘costly mistake”.
“Nothing could be further from the truth and I’m so sorry if my words were misunderstood. I loved this piece and I’m so, so proud of Cinderella and everyone who took part. into our program.

“We were desperate to support the West End after two years of a devastating pandemic and the mistake we made was trying to open too early, meaning we had to postpone it twice.
“Everything we did was try to support the West End and get people back to work after the worst period in our history.
“For now, I want to say thank you to everyone involved in Cinderella for everything you’ve done. With love today and always, Andrew Lloyd Webber.”
