Everybody’s Talking About… New Cast Members!

16th July, 2018

New casting has been announced for Everybody’s Talking About Jamie!

From 16 July, Rebecca McKinnis (Mamma Mia!We Will Rock You, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie) will play Jamie’s mum Margaret and Lee Ross (EastEnders) will play Hugo/Loco.

Continuing cast members are John McCrea (Jamie), Shobna Gulati (Ray), Tamsin Carroll (Miss Hedge), Lucie Shorthouse (Pritti Pasha), Alex Anstey (Laika Virgin), Luke Baker (Dean Paxton), Luke Bayer, Courtney Bowman (Fatimah), Marvyn Charles, Ken Christiansen (Jamie’s Dad), Jordan Cunningham (Sayid), Daniel Davids (Levi), James Gillan (Tray Sophisticay), Ryan Hughes (Mickey), Daniel Jacob (Sandra Bollock), Cherelle Jay, Harriet Payne (Bex), Chloe Pole, Shiv Rabheru (Cy), Lauran Rae (Becca) and Kirstie Skivington (Vicki).

On the cast change, producer Nica Burns said: “It’s a big milestone saying goodbye to two of our terrific leading actors, Josie Walker and Phil Nichol. Josie has played Margaret New superbly from the very first workshop four years ago and Phil has brought his wonderful comic touch to the role of Hugo / Loco at the Apollo.”

“I am delighted to reveal that Rebecca McKinnis – who has deputised brilliantly for Josie on a number of occasions, now makes Margaret New all her own. A big welcome to the talented Lee Ross who is putting on his heels to play the role of Hugo/Loco.”
