One cast as 'Diane East'? (3)


I believe the answer is:


'one cast' is the definition.

''diane east'?' is the wordplay.
''diane' becomes 'di' (short for Diane).
'east'?' becomes 'e' (abbreviation).

'as' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for die that I've seen before include "THIRD PART OF 24" , "Mould; become extinct" , "a block?" , "one proverbially straight" , "Cube with spots on the six faces" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
