AN INTERVIEW WITH LUCIE JONES (MOLLY) AND LIAM DOYLE (SAM) THE CAST OF GHOST THE MUSICAL
Adapted from the award-winning movie starring Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze, Ghost The Musical is finally coming to our little island! Opening on 5th November 2015 at MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands, this musical will be exceptional with its awe inspring special effects and golden cast.
Prior to the opening, we are honoured to interview the two main leads, Lucie Jones (Molly Jenson) and Liam Doyle (Sam Wheat) at the media press call. Read on to learn more about this pair of stage lovers.
With dancing backgrounds, both Lucie and Liam are inspired by their dance teachers back home to act on Broadway. Lucie revealed that she always cried when it was time to go for her dance class and did not even have any thoughts of acting on stage in the past. In this case, teachers do make a difference don’t they? Since both of them are standing proudly on the international stage undertaking great performances now.
Having acted in several musicals including the all-time favourite Wicked, Liam is definitely not tired of what he is doing. “It’s part of the job, we love what we do!” he piped enthusiastically upon being asked if he will get bored acting the same character repeatedly. He added, “With theatre, we don’t know what’s going to go wrong. You have to think on your feet when something goes wrong on stage and act immediately at real time!” That kind of spontaneity definitely sounds challenging.
Embracing a fiesty personality, Lucie does resemble her character, Molly Jenson. She admitted, “I am not afraid of standing up to someone if I feel the need to as long as it is within reason”. Concuring to Lucie, Liam explains that the similarity between the characters and the actors is one of the reasons they were chosen for the roles.
Never thinking he would be able to perform in this musical, Liam was really over the moon when the agent informed him that he had gotten the job. Similarly, Lucie blurted, “It’s my dream job! I saw it 4 times in London as the music and the story are so good. We are pouring our hearts out every night and hope the audience will be as enchanted as we are!”
Now let the show speak for itself as we are whirled into a supernatural world of romance.
