In our profile series, Tell Us In 10, we ask cast members and creatives of top London shows to tell us all about themselves in just 10 questions. From how their castmates would describe them and alternative careers, to their Theatreland idols, we want to know it all!

This week, we hear from Ben Stock, who’s currently playing Merlin in Magical Merlin, playing at The Fortune Theatre from 24 October to 30 October. 

Find out more about Ben and his career so far below:

1. My route into theatre was…

Through drama lessons and amateur theatre – a fabulous training for anyone!

2. My West End idol is…

Anyone who survives and keeps working and striving to be a part of this wonderful, crazy world!

3. My colleagues would describe me as…

Witty, “showbiz”……and loud!!! (I just asked them!)

4. My favourite show present or past (that isn’t one I star in) is…

Blood Brothers – love it!

5. The career moment I’m most proud of is…

Performing my one man show at 54 Below in New York – a total dream!

6. The hardest part about my role is…

The magic…..but I can’t say anymore as it’s all a big secret!

7. If I didn’t work in theatre I would be…

Rich! JOKE!! I’d have to do something creative – not sure what though!

8. Something people don’t know about me is…

I was the longest baby ever born in the Bristol Royal Infirmary at the time!

9. The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is…

Say yes! You never know where it will take you.

10. The one thing I wish I could tell my younger self is…

Believe in yourself and have the confidence to just be yourself. You are enough!
