Lashana Lynch reportedly cast as Miss Honey in upcoming Matilda musical film
British actress Lashana Lynch, who is perhaps best known for her portrayal of fighter pilot Maria Rambeau in Captain Marvel (2019) and who is set to star in the next James Bond film, No Time To Die, is said to be in "final negotiations" to portray Miss Honey in the upcoming new movie adaptation of Matilda The Musical.
The last actress to play Matilda's schoolteacher, Miss Jennifer Honey, on-screen was Embeth Davidtz in the hit 1996 film Matilda, which starred Mara Wilson in the titular role opposite Danny DeVito as Harry Wormwood and Pam Ferris as Matilda's evil headmaster. Both the film and the musical are based on Roald Dahl's 1988 children's fantasy novel of the same name. Get the full scoop below.

London Theatre Review: Marvellous Matilda at the Cambridge Theatre
Matilda the Musical, with music and lyrics by the talented Tim Minchin is always going to be a good time. I was most interested to see how children would be able to get lost in the story, to be absorbed by the magic that it has to offer. Set in the charming Cambridge Theatre, it has quite the staging and setting and Crunchem Hall is set very well. Of particular note are the letters of the alphabet displayed and dotted around – I wonder what K stands for…
