Canadian born actor and singer Alex Gaumond moved from Montreal to the UK in 1997 to study at the celebrated Guildford School of Acting where he achieved a 1st class BA (Hons).

After completing his degree at GSA in 2000, Alex made his professional debut that very same year in the ensemble of Miss Saigon in the Philippines where he was flown half way across the world to feature in a show that is very close to the country’s heritage. Alex also understudied the leading role of Chris in that production and went on to perform in the same musical in Hong Kong and Singapore in 2001.

2002 saw Gaumond make his professional West End debut at the Prince Of Wales where he understudied the roles of Malcolm, Jerry and Ethan in The Full Monty. After completing this Gaumond then played the character of Malcolm in the national tour of The Full Monty in 2004, which marked his first leading role.

Between 2002 and 2009 Gaumond made a number of appearances in a variety of UK national tours and London shows, particularly noteworthy performances include Guys And Dolls (Donmar Warehouse production), Desperately Seeking Susan, Sunday In The Park With George (5 times Olivier Award winning production) and Scrooge where he played the role of Tom Jenkins at the London Palladium and recorded a cast album with arguably Britain’s first teen idol and rock star, Tommy Steele.

In 2009 his career took to new levels when he was cast by Ben Elton, Brian May and Roger Taylor to play the lead role of Galileo in their acclaimed musical We Will Rock You. The stage adaptation of songs taken from infamous British band Queen began life at the Dominion Theatre in the West End in 2002 and became the longest running musical at the Dominion, and in 2009 the show was taken on a UK tour for the first time with Gaumond performing 7 shows a week for 7 months, playing at the Palace Theatre in Manchester, the Sunderland Empire, the Birmingham Hippodrome and the Bristol Hippodrome.

In 2009 Gaumond learned of his success with another musical which was to debut at the Savoy Theatre in London in January 2010. He had been cast to play the male lead (Emmett) in the original UK production of the stage adaptation of Legally Blonde. This exciting character provided Alex with a freshly written role for theatre that had been superbly crafted by the writers and brilliantly moulded by Alex so that he made the role his own. His work in the show earned him a nomination for 'Best Actor in a Musical' at the WhatsOnStage Awards and the prestigious Olivier Awards in 2011. The production itself received critical acclaim and went on to win 'Best Musical' in all the major awards that year. An album of the Original London Cast, featuring Alex, was recorded live under the reputed theatre label First Night Records.

Following his highly acclaimed run of almost two years in Legally Blonde, Alex made a return to We Will Rock You, this time at the Dominion Theatre (winner of the Olivier Audience Award 2011 for best long-running show), in which he starred for 6 months and was nominated for a WhatsOnStage Award 2012 for 'Best Takeover in a Role'.

In 2012 Alex starred as Jesus in a new production of Jesus Christ Superstar for Ljubljana Festival in Slovenia and released his first single, Here I Am (available worldwide from most download sites), which he launched with a performance at West End Live in Trafalgar Square in front of 20,000 people, as one of only three recording artists invited to perform their solo material amongst all the West End shows featured in the programme.

In 2013 he played Alberto Beddini in Top Hat at the Aldwych Theatre. Whilst in the show, he attended the Olivier Awards, which saw the production win for 'Best New Musical', 'Best Choreography' and 'Best Costume Design'.

From September 2013 to September 2014, Alex starred in the Royal Shakespeare Company's multi award winning production of Matilda at the Cambridge Theatre, playing the iconic role of headmistress Miss Trunchbull. During his time on the show, Alex made many TV appearances including BBC's Children in Need and The Paul O'Grady Show on ITV, where he performed a specially conceived sketch with the show's host and guests.

In November 2014, Alex joined the cast of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at the Savoy Theatre, replacing Rufus Hound in the role of Freddy Benson, the iconic conman portrayed by Steve Martin in the original movie version. Alex starred opposite Robert Lindsay at the Savoy Theatre and played the role until the production closed in the West End on 7 March 2015.

Immediately following this, Alex played the role of Beadle Bamford in English National Opera's production of Sweeney Todd at the London Coliseum, opposite opera star Bryn Terfel and movie star Emma Thompson, from 30 March to 12 April 2015.

In April 2015, it was announced that Alex would star as Adam Pontipee in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, from 16 July to 29 August 2015.

RAMIN KARIMLOO
RAMIN KARIMLOO

In the world of theatrical performers, Ramin Karimloo is known as one of the most formidable talents in the industry.  Heralded for his portrayal of leading roles Jean Valjean in Les Mirerables and the Phantom in Phantom of the Opera, Karimloo is a musical force unlike any other.  In fact, it was his unbridaled reputation that led to his performance in the recent Oscar tribute to Les Misérables.

Iranian-born, Canadian actor, singer Ramin is recognized as the favorite leading man to perform in London's West End Musical Theatre by whatsonstage.com. Ramin has played starring roles in both of the West End's longest running musicals; Jean Valjean, Enjolras and Marius in Les Misérables and the Phantom and Raoul in The Phantom of the Opera.

Ramin was hand picked by Andrew Lloyd Webber to portray the lead role in his sequel to The Phantom of the Opera, Andrew Lloyd Webber's Love Never Dies.  He originated the role of Phantom in this sequel, a role that won him the prestigious Theatregoer’s Choice Award and the Broadwayworld.com award for Best Actor in a musical.

He was also nominated and won the award for the Best Actor category for the prestigious Viewers' Choice Theatre Awards at Whatsonstage.com in 2011, as well as nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Musical.

Earlier this year Ramin played The Phantom for three performances alongside Love Never Dies co-star Sierra Boggess in the unique “25th Anniversary Production of The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall”, that was streamed live to cinemas across the world, providing an even larger stage for this theatrical superstar’s talent.   Additionally, he performed the title song, Music Of The Night, during the Broadway 25th Anniversary of Phantom of the Opera. 

Ramin also played the role of Enjolras in the “25th Anniversary Concert of Les Misérables” at The O2 Arena in London where it has been one of the most widely viewed shows in PBS history.

During the months of November, 2011 to March, 2012, Ramin returned to Les Misérables, to play the lead role of Jean Valjean at The Queen's Theatre, London, for which he won the 2013 Theatregoers' Choice Award for Best Takeover in a Role.

Ramin’s debut album, “Human Heart”, is a summary of his life journey. “I have a huge love for country and bluegrass; I love rock ’n’ roll; and I love what I’m doing in musical theatre, so the key was how to balance and blend them all,” Ramin said.  “I didn’t want to be just a theater star putting out an album.  I wanted to have lived the songs. I wanted an album that was like a diary,” he reflects.

Citing influences as diverse as The Tragically Hip, Johnny Cash, Mumford & Sons and The Avett Brothers, a typical musical theater album was never a possibility. “I wanted to marry the sounds of rock and country with things that people already know me for.”  In his album, “Human Heart” Ramin found the perfect marriage, and in his own term “Broadgrass.”

Starting in September 2013, Ramin will reprise the role of Jean Valjean in a Canadian tour of the newly staged Les Misérables.
