The Australian actress was set to play the lead in George Bernard Shaw's Saint Joan, a play about 15th century French military leader Joan of Arc, one of the jewels in the crown of the theatre company's 2018 season.

New casting for the role will be announced in the coming weeks and the Sydney Theatre Company has wished Stone the best.

"We're absolutely thrilled for Yael and wish her all the best for this exciting new chapter of her life," the company's artistic director Kip Williams said in a statement on Thursday.

Stone, originally from Sydney, shot to fame in 2013 playing New Jersey inmate Lorna Morello, one of the main characters in Netflix ensemble show Orange Is The New Black.

She is married to Australian actor Dan Spielman who recently starred in ABC series The Code.
