(On his work as a member in the musical Chicago) "I suppose doing that show was my proof that I could dance so I had to move onwards to my real passion, acting."
Since I knew nobody in London, I arranged to work as a volunteer in a home for people with learning disabilities, and they provided me with housing and pocket money. Before starting the theatre course, Mountview Drama School told me there was no money to fund my scholarship so I decided to lose my place there. I was about to leave for Argentina when I auditioned for London Studio Centre as my last chance and they offered me a full scholarship on the spot.
