The two principal South African Meg Girys:
Left: Tandi Meikle, was the original Meg Giry of the South African productions in 2004, performing in Johannesburg and Pretoria. In the revival in 2011-12 she was the dance captain and, I believe, understudying the role of Meg.
Right: Cat Lane was Meg Giry in the 2011-12 revival. Like many other from the South African cast and crew she stayed with Phantom when touring in Asia from 2012 (the World Tour). She left the tour in 2013 to star as Meg Giry in London’s West End.
