The first character is Drew, an ex-boyfriend of Billy's. Todd isn't best pleased with the new arrival and you can find out why here.
Drew will be played by actor Tom Godwin. For twenty years Tom has pursued a career as an actor, Movement Director and Theatre Maker.
In 2003 he tasted his Warholian 15 minutes of fame as the dancing man in the Lynx Pulse campaign with the No.1 single "I like to Party".
And yes, it's here!
Moving away from co-running a theatre company to concentrate on a full time acting career Tom has spent the last 12 years working with some of the most inspiring people in Theatre, Film and TV.
He plays guitar in a covers band, Painter's Radio, and lives in leafy south east London with his wife Lucy and children Sylvan and Cai. His IMDB profile is here.
