Martin Ball’s #TopHatChat

Published 20 November 2012

In the latest of our #TopHatChat Twitter takeovers, actor Martin Ball was on hand at the Aldwych theatre to answer your questions about life as an actor, his love of musicals and the different direction life could have taken him if he hadn’t had his heart set on the stage.

Now leading the Top Hat cast as bumbling producer Horace, Ball’s career has seen him star in top West End musicals including Wicked and Mamma Mia! and win a TMA Theatre Award (now the Theatre Awards UK) for his role in the UK tour of hit production Mary Poppins. On screen he has appeared in numerous popular series from children’s classic Bernard’s Watch to hospital drama Casualty, but what we didn’t know until today was a rather revealing secret about his life before he made it as a successful actor…

If you missed the live takeover, read the highlights below and put the next takeover on 22 November in your diary! This time @O_L_T will be taken over by Portuguese musical star Ricardo Afonso. Currently appearing as Top Hat’s comedic Alberto Beddini, he’s arguably most well-known for his role in We Will Rock You. Log onto Twitter at 12:30 and tweet us your question to @O_L_T including the hashtag #TopHatChat.
