Noah Thomas to star in title role of Everybody's Talking About Jamie
Noah Thomas will take over the lead role from Layton Williams from 6th January 2020, with Layton Williams reprising his performance in the show’s national tour.
Speaking about the audition process, Thomas said: “Only two weeks ago I was studying at Mountview and had very little time to prepare for the audition, which I saw as a chance to gain some experience in the industry. I was asked back the next day, not expecting anything, and they asked me if I would like to play Jamie. I couldn’t believe it... This is so surreal and I am so ready for whatever this experience holds.”
The cast of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is currently completed by Melissa Jacques, Sejal Keshwala, Sabrina Sandhu, Phil Nichol, Marlon G Day, Momar Diagne, Zahra Jones, Luke Latchman Ziggy Tyler Taylor, Alex Anstey, Luke Baker, Tilly La Belle Yengo, James Gillan, Alexander Archer, Daniel Jacob, Emily Kenwright, Jordan Laviniere, Harriet Payne and Gillian Ford.
