Bridgerton musical anyone? Lord Anthony is ready.

Jonathan Bailey

by Aaliyah Harry |

Jonathan Baileyis best known for playing Anthony Bridgerton, the eldest Bridgerton sibling and the internet's heart-throb. The sizzling chemistry between him and Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley) is all we can can currently think about. However, we have been momentarily distracted by this incredible find. Did you know about Jonathan Bailey's musical theatre past? Neither did we!

Jonathan actually has an excellent singing voice - the actor is in fact multitalented! An audition tape of Jonathan singing for a production of Last Five Years is doing the rounds on YouTube. (He did in fact get the part in the 2016 production.)

Listen to his amazing singing voice here:

What musicals and plays has Jonathan Bailey starred in?

Jonathan started out as a child actor in Royal Shakespeare Company productions of A Christmas Carol and King John. After finishing secondary school, he deferred his acceptance to the Open University in favour of working as an actor full-time. He won an Olivier Award in 2019 for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his performance in Company.

Jonathan used his acceptance speech to praise the production for showing 'a lovely and celebratory snapshot of gay love at a time where acknowledging the very existence of LGBT people in our schools is being questioned.' He added, 'We’re not that different, we’re just as flawed and desperate to fall in love as everyone else.'

The actor previously also played Tim Price in American Psycho at the Almeida Theatre and, of course, starred in The Last Five Years. He also appeared in 2017 play King Lear (sadly, no singing in that one).

If you're eager to see him hit the stage you're in luck. Jonathan is currently starring in a West End revival of Mike Bartlett's Cock at the Ambassadors Theatre until 4 June. Get your tickets now if you fancy...
