Los Angeles: Actress Sarah Jessica Parker says she never thought that she would play the lead role in 1979 Broadway musical "Annie".
The 51-year-old starred in the Broadway musical when she was 14 years old.
She is shocked that she was cast in the production and was able to appear in the "magical phenomenon" as a child, reports people.com. "(I) watched Andrea (McArdle) and assumed I would never be in 'Annie'," Parker told Inside Edition website.
"I would certainly never play Annie, and I wouldn't be part of this sort of magical phenomenon that washed over Broadway," she added.
