Video: Jamie Campbell Bower

Published 15 May 2015

After months of anticipation, the cast of Bend It Like Beckham The Musical will perform for the very first time tonight as the screen to stage musical adaptation makes its world premiere at the Phoenix Theatre.

Keen to get the sneaky inside scoop on what audiences, whether they’re fans of the film or new to the story, can expect from Gurinder Chadha’s brand new stage show, we spoke to leading man Jamie Campbell Bower on the red carpet of last month’s Olivier Awards with MasterCard.

Watch the video above to see the Twilight and Harry Potter screen star talk about crafting new strings to his bow in taking on the role of football coach Joe in the inspiring tale of a teenager’s dream of being a footballer against all odds, why the show taps into current affairs and how he has kept his childlike wonder for the stage alive.

Bend It Like Beckham The Musical is currently booking at the Phoenix Theatre until 24 October. You can book tickets through us here.
