‘I’d sell my soul to be in a comedy,’ laughs Rebecca Trehearn. ‘Just about everything I have done for the past three or four years has been a weepie.’ And so it continues.

After playing the doomed Jenny Cavalleri in Love Story in the West End, she understudied the role of Molly Jensen in Ghost The Musical, a part she has now made her own on the show’s national tour.

Playing Southampton’s Mayflower Theatre from Tuesday until November 9, the musical offers a timeless fantasy about the power of love, just as the film did with Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore all those years ago.

‘Mollie is a great character to play. We are both artistic people. She is a sculptor and a potter, and I suppose our lifestyle is quite similar. But she is a really feisty character, and that’s what I like.’
