Netflix's GLOW season 3 cast Thelma and Louise's star Geena Davis as the incredibly-named Sandy Devereaux St. Clair, And now, singer/actress Kate Nash has teased the A-lister's role in the upcoming show, which is set in Las Vegas, a city Kate "f**king hates."

Speaking exclusively to Digital Spy ahead of her tour dates playing at Community and Standon Calling festivals, Kate, who plays Rhonda Richardson (aka Britannica), dubbed Geena "iconic".

Geena is set to play the hotel and casino owner who'll host the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling's live show, after it moved to Las Vegas following K-DTV's axing at the end of season 2.

Kate said: "Vegas is quite interesting, as it's such a weird place, in real life as well. It's like this weird fake town that just exists as a bunch of casinos and everyone who is there is trying to make something work, make money and shows happen.

"It's such a weird place, but in real life, I f**king hate Vegas. You go there and you're like, 'I don't know what this is'. People live here and I'm so confused and I don't like gambling, and it's just weird.

"It's in a different [way] to LA, where everybody is trying to be a star. In Vegas everybody is like, get chicks and making a show. I feel like people are not one thing in a way, but everybody has to make it work because she's in charge of this thing."

Kate said: "Geena Davis being on the set was amazing. We would all sit together and Geena Davis would just be there and she's learning how to flip a card or roll dice, because she's learning how to do things.


"She was so excited to be part of GLOW and it was just quite surreal."

And Kate said she felt like "it's so weird that I’m on a TV show with f**king, Geena Davis right now".

Then of course, there's Rhonda's own plot with Sebastian 'Bash' Howard (Chris Lowell), which saw Rhonda and him marry to prevent her being deported.

All of this is despite Bash's hiding his own sexuality from the rest of the group, after his butler – and potential love interest – died from an AIDS-related illness in season 2.

"It was really fun working with Chris Lowell this season," explained Kate.

"What is happening with Rhonda and Bash? They’re married, they don't know each other, they're these characters that people underestimate and there's a lot of fun to play with between these two characters."

Kate Nash also reacted to the threat of GLOW being axed after season one, following Netflix revealing it only gives shows 28 days to hit targets.

GLOW returns to Netflix on August 9. Kate Nash is set to play Community Festival in London on Sunday, June 30 and Standon Calling in Hertfordshire on Saturday, July 27.
