London, (ANI): Hollywood legend Goldberg is back in Sister Act. The 54-year-old played Mother Superior in a stage version at the London Palladium, nearly 20 years after the film shot her to fame.

The Oscar-winner ended up with the role accidentally during a meeting with her fellow producers of the stage production to find a replacement for outgoing Mother Superior Sheila Hancock. To give producers more time to find a new Mother Superior, Goldberg jokingly suggested she take on the role for a few weeks and they agreed.

“It's a big deal. It's The Palladium and it's London, and it's my first stage production here that I'm in," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying. She will be in musical for three weeks, playing the part filled by Maggie Smith and Sheila Hancock in the past.
