Congratulations to singer/actress T.V. Carpio, who has taken over one of the lead roles in the Broadway production of Spider-Man. Directed and co-written by Julie Taymor, the musical features songs written by U2’s Bono and The Edge. Ms. Carpio previously worked with Julie Taymor in Taymor’s film, Across the Universe.
The South China Morning Post reports:
“This role is bigger but I’m happy to have even one month to tackle it,” she said in New York. “I have watched my mother and have worked with her for many years, especially in Hong Kong, where people work at a very fast pace. It has prepared me to learn and absorb things quite quickly.”
That’s right, her mother is Teresa Carpio. I had the opportunity to photograph Ms. Carpio in May, 2010, when she appeared as a guest at her mother’s shows at the Hong Kong Coliseum. She is, as you can see, gorgeous as well as talented.
Here are a couple more shots of this beautiful woman. You’re welcome.
