Matt Willis- 124x124px

Born in London in 1983, Matt Willis is an English singer and actor.

Willis found fame as one-third of British boyband Busted. Formed in 2000, the award-winning band released tracks including “Year 3000” and “What I Go To School For." After splitting in 2005, Willis went solo and released his 2006 album, aptly named Don’t Let It Go To Waste. The band Busted eventually came together after a decade, releasing their latest album in 2018.

In 2010, Willis made his West End debut in Flashdance at the Shaftesbury Theatre. He played Nick Hurley in the limited run, in a production which London Theatre praised as having "an underlying grittiness which is both realistic and convincing." The following year, he took over the role of Fiyero in Wicked, continuing in the production for over a year.

More recently, Willis has starred in Little Shop of Horrors at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre. London Theatre raved that Willis “shows a fearless enthusiasm to play the fool and shows off a versatility of caricatures and accents, as demented dentist Orin in the first half and a host of other over-the-top figures in the second half.” He returned to the West End to play Bob Cratchit in A Christmas Carol at the Dominion Theatre. In 2021, he played Dr. Pomatter in the UK tour of Waitress.
