Schoolboy beats hundreds to land Royal Shakespeare Company role
A 16-year-old actor from Aigburth has beaten hundreds of other young actors and landed a role with the Royal Shakespeare Company.
TJ Jones, who went to St Francis Xavier’s College, will be playing Mickey in The Seven Acts of Mercy by Anders Lustgarten in Stratford Upon Avon.
TJ previously appeared in Reds and Blues at the Royal Court Theatre as well as in BBC dramas and films.
But this is his first role away from home and he will be moving to Stratford Upon Avon in just over a week’s time.
TJ’s mum, Lynn Jones, 43, said she and her husband Mark are “very, very proud.”
