Blanchard recovering from Broadway

Tammy Blanchard has revealed starring in Broadway musical How To Succeed In Business made her feel old.

The 35-year-old star of The Big C loved working on the stage show, which co-starred Harry Potter's Daniel Radcliffe, but admitted it was very hard work.

Tammy said:" My body doesn't hurt and that's a good thing. I thought I was so much older than I am. Now that I'm not doing the show any more, I feel more energetic. I'm not so tired.

"I have a schedule with family and friends. It's just a blessing. It was a jolt at first not having things to do every day and not having somewhere to go and do what I love every day, which is act. But I have my little girl - my beautiful four-year-old gorgeous girl - and I get to pay attention to her and spend time with her and my family, so it's good.

"But I've got to get back into it right away. I love acting so much that I have to have that as much as I have to have my time with my kid."

Tammy stars with Mira Sorvino in new movie Union Square, about two sisters who have become estranged after a tumultuous upbringing in the Bronx.

Tammy's character has fled to Manhattan's Union Square, where she pretends she's from Maine and lives the life of a health fanatic. Her chain-smoking sister arrives on her doorstep and throws her life on its head.

The actress revealed: "It's hard for me to see myself so uptight and so against family. It's so opposite of everything I am. And organic? I like a good cheeseburger."
