During today’s #TopHatChat, Ricardo Afonso took to Twitter to reveal everything from his all-time favourite role, the best place to eat in London and how he manages to balance being a dad and performing on stage as Top Hat’s comic fashion designer.
Currently appearing in the glamorous 1930s musical at the Aldwych theatre, Afonso has previously starred as Galileo in hit Queen musical We Will Rock You and led the show’s cast in 2008’s Olympic handover concert. Elsewhere he has lent his voice to Portuguese versions of Disney and DreamWorks films including Beauty And The Beast, 102 Dalmatians and Shrek.
If you missed the takeover, check out the highlights below and get thinking about what you might like to ask the musical’s leading duo, because topping off our torrent of Twitter takeovers on 29 November at 12:30 will be Top Hat’s leading man and winner of Strictly Come Dancing Tom Chambers following his new co-star and star of the UK tour of Dirty Dancing, Charlotte Gooch at 12:00.
