Furlan is still in the running for the lead role of Dorothy in Andrew Lloyd Webber
's stage adaptation of The Wizard of Oz
. In a recent interview on Information Radio
, Furlan was quick to thank her hometown supporters. "It feels incredible. Honestly, the city of Winnipeg and province of Manitoba has carried me so far, I really owe a lot to them, I couldn't thank them enough," she said.
When asked how she deals with the pressure to perform each on the high stakes reality show, Furlan credits her drive to capture the iconic role. "It's the passion that carries you really, because all of us love performing. If you do get eliminated you get to perform one last time and you might as well make it your best performance because you want to go out with a bang. So I really think it's the passion that carries us through the pressure."
