posticon Questions for Ben James-Ellis


Ben James-Ellis is currently playing Link in Hairspray in LONDON! In 2005 he was awarded a scholarship to attend the Italia Conti Academy of Performing Arts in London.

In 2007 he successfully auditioned for the BBC TV show Any Dream Will Do – Andrew Lloyd Webber’s search for the new ‘Joseph’ where he reached the semi finals.

Ben is so thrilled to be making his professional musical theatre debut playing Link Larkin in Hairspray and he's waiting to hear your questions!

Re: Questions for Ben James-Ellis


Have you ever seen the Broadway play, movie or movie musical? Did they influence your portrayal of Link?

I hear theyve changed a few jokes and lines in the show to make it more culturally relevant in consideration of its location, tell us about the new jokes written for the show and the changes that have been made.

Re: Questions for Ben James-Ellis


What is your favorite part of being in Hairspray?

Do you have a favorite scene/song to perform in the show?

Re: Questions for Ben James-Ellis


When you went to school, were you cool and popular like Link?

Re: Questions for Ben James-Ellis


What were your feelings as you went on as Link for the very first time?
