Ex Theatretrain Student Understudy to Orlando Bloom

James Groom was a part of Theatretrain Chelmsford back in 1995 when he was 11 years old. James’ first big performance with Theatretrain was at the Bloomsbury theatre and he and our daughter Lucy went on to perform in almost every theatre in the West End, most notably Drury Lane in the ‘Long and Winding Road’ production.

James is now understudy to Orlando Bloom at the Trafalgar Studios London, in Killer Joe.  James is performing for four days in June and again for a week mid july.

He’s received much acclaim on Twitter, even from people who had booked well in advance to see Orland Bloom specifically, but were just as thrilled with James’ performance and have said he’s their “new favourite”.

Well done James from all of Theatretrain!
