Wicked or Good? Edit

No good deed will. I do! ~Elphaba in No good deeWhile in The Wizard of oz, where Elphaba seems to have been wicked all along, and in wicked the book where Elphaba becomes wicked later but starts out good, in the play she seems to be good all along however in the song No good deed she says she is now wicked, but she still wants to. Help the monkeys and she is good when she says goodbye to Glinda and when she runs away with Fiyero, so it seems as if she was always good and never became wicked. However, she may have become wicked, at one point, as some things say that.* But, by the end of the play she seems to be good. Her talk with Glinda may have been what made her good, but it is most likely that she never became wicked

Facts Edit

  • She was first played by Idina Menzel*
  • She is now played by Rachel TuckerRachel Tucker.
  • Elphaba is just starting collage, so it is thought that she is eighteen or nineteen, however in the book, she was three years older then Nessarose, which would put her at 20 or 21.
  • However, in the play it is more likely then she was about a year, or less, older then Nessarose,
  • They also could have gone early (Or in Oz people go to collage early) so, at the very least, Elphaba is somewhere between the ages of 13 and 21 in the first act, and about two years later, between the ages of 15 and 24, in the second.
