Alex Gaumond takes leading role of Galileo in We Will Rock You

Alex Gaumond has been named in an updated cast for We Will Rock You, taking on the role of Galileo.

The singer, who was nominated as Best Actor in a Musical in both the Olivier and Awards for playing Emmett in Legally Blonde, will make his opening bow in front of those booking London theatre breaks at the Dominion on Monday August 8th.

He takes over from current Galileo Ricardo Afonso who is going on to star in Irving Berlin's Top Hat, which opens next month.

"Alex is a superb actor, and his interpretation of Galileo on tour in the UK was a huge hit with audiences. We look forward to a new triumph in the Dominion, in WWRY’s 10th year," commented We Will Rock You's co-creator Brian May.

The production is now into its tenth year at the Dominion, while a special show will be performed on Monday September 5th to celebrate former Queen frontman Freddie Mercury's 65th birthday.

Furthermore, Mazz Murray will be making her comeback to the production in the role of Killer Queen for a special two-week run between Monday August 8th and Saturday August 20th.
