Liam is back performing in the West End having taken a break from the stage to appear in the latest series of BBC's The Voice UK. With West End credits including Wicked, Les Miserables and Hairspray, Liam has recently taken over the role of Raoul, Vicomte de Chagny in The Phantom Of The Opera.
How did you get the role of Raoul in The Phantom Of The Opera? I auditioned for it when they asked me to come in for it.
Did you find the casting process nerve wracking? Yes I did as I haven't auditioned for 1 year and a half. But I also found it exciting.
What were your main fears when walking out on the stage for the first time? My fears are always to disappoint but also messing up my lines and going blank. I always say a prayer and believe that my nan is with me.
Do you have any rituals or routines in preserving your voice for the demanding schedule? Not really. Just drink plenty of water and warm up before the show.
What have been the main barriers you've faced in your career? I have been very fortunate however in the UK they love to pigeon hole people which is one of the reasons why I did The Voice UK.
What would be your ultimate role? To create something Original or maybe play Aladdin in the musical.
Have you had any formal acting training? I trained for 3 years at Laine Theatre Arts and also attend many workshops and classes at The Actors Centre.
What was it like to audition for The Voice UK? A great eye opening experience. Really helped me grow as a person and know what I want out of my life.
Are you a fan or anybody out there who is not currently on the radar? I love Luke James as this guy is a great singer but I also love Gregory Porter.
What advice would you give to any budding performers out there? Know your talent, keep crafting at your talent and take risks when they are needed.
