Lindsay Lohan, in London preparing for her stage debut, says she may move from New York to the British capital.

The actress, 28, told the BBC last week she was considering moving to London "for good," saying that, "I've noticed here, watching the news, you guys have such a different outlook. In the U.S. starting at 5 p.m. it's 'TMZ,' it's all these shows talking about people's personal lives and here I don't notice any of that -- it's news and politics and music. So it's nice to be able to turn on the TV and not everything is about gossip. That's a really nice feeling."

Addressing a reputation for being problematic, she vowed she would not miss any rehearsals, which have yet to start, or performances. "That's not going to happen," she told the network. "That's not on the cards. It's not. . . . I'm at a place in my life where I like the commitment. I'm looking forward to that part of it."

Lohan plays the manipulative Hollywood secretary Karen in a West End revival of David Mamet's "Speed-the-Plow," running Sept. 24 through Nov. 29 at the Playhouse Theatre.

"I want to be known for my talents and my work that I create, rather than [as] a tabloid sensation," Lohan, a TV and film actress since childhood, said of her turn toward the theater. "However long it does take, I'm willing to do it. I'm willing to work for it."
