Goes bald for role

Light talks about shaving off all her hair for her new role in the off-Broadway play Wit, as Vivian Bearing, who has advanced metastatic ovarian cancer.

You can wear a bald pate, but it’s not the same. That was part of the requirement, shaving my head. It was a difficult decision to make. But I said, are you going to let those kinds of considerations stand in the way of being able to play this character and give this performance and this information? The play is about a woman who is ill with ovarian cancer, but it really is about a person’s transformation.
