Layton Williams, who starred in the title role of London's Billy Elliot and is best known for his work in the BBC series Beautiful People and the BBC comedy Bad Education, stepped into the title role of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie in the West End January 28.

He succeeded John McCrea, who created the role of Jamie when the show debuted at Sheffield Crucible Theatre in February 2017, and who played the part since its opening in the West End in November 2017.

Recent additions to the cast also include Shane Richie as Hugo/Loco Channelle, Hayley Tamaddon as Miss Hedge, Sejal Keshwala as Ray, and Sabrina Sandhu as Pritti Pasha.

Producer Nica Burns said in an earlier statement, “We’re delighted to welcome Layton Williams as only our second Jamie as we say goodbye to the wonderful John McCrea, who created the role and leaves the cast on 26 January 2019. Layton is a supremely talented actor, singer and dancer with a long list of credits. He is equally at home on TV in series like Beautiful People and Bad Education as he is on stage in roles such as Angel in Rent and Seaweed in Hairspray. I’m sure he will make the role of Jamie very much his own.”

Based on the 2011 documentary Jamie: Drag Queen at 16, Everybody's Talking About Jamie centers on a young drag queen who overcomes prejudice to step into the spotlight. The musical features music by The Feeling lead singer and songwriter Dan Gillespie Sells and a book and lyrics by Tom MacRae.

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is produced in the West End by Nica Burns, Ian Osborne, Paula Marie Black, and Teresa and Craig Beech.
