Spy x Family is one of this year’s biggest anime hits, and it is getting a stage musical adaptation in 2023 featuring four adorable actresses as Anya Forger.
Specifically, these four actresses are Risa Masuda, Aoi Ikemura, Miharu Izawa, and Miharu Fukuchi, and they will all play everyone’s pink-haired telepath. Their casting was announced on the musical’s official Twitter account.
So, why are there four Anya’s? While not mentioned in the announcement, in a typical stage production, main roles are typically played by two actors given how difficult and tiring it is to play lead roles in plays. What’s more, a child actor can only work for a limited amount of time, hence the need for four actresses for Anya.
